Organize and deliver your learning content in courses

You deliver learning content to your learners in so called courses. This article explains how to organize units into courses and enroll your users for learning.

Courses contain one or more learning units. You can use the same unit in as many courses as you like, thus avoiding the creation of duplicate content (e.g. for tutorials).
