3.  From the Start a New Course window, enter a name for your course prep area. Leave the content copyrighted for now. 

4.  Select Create Course.

If you don't see the option to start a new course, this usually means you don't have a course where you have the Teacher role yet. If this is the case, please contact the Learning Technologies team and we'll create a new sandbox for you.
