As stated before, every course belongs to a category. Don't worry if you mistakenly put a course into the wrong category. It is easy for the site administrator to change a course's category.
Creating a course and filling it with content are two different functions. In this section, we describe creating a blank course, with no content. In later chapters, we describe how to add material to a course.
To create a course, a user must have the role of Administrator or Course creator. To add material to a course, a user must have the role Administrator, Course creator, Manager, or Teacher (usually the Teacher adds material).
