There is a wizard to help you create courses. This Wizard is meant for course authors who prefer to use only the most popular course elements in OpenOLAT without having to deal with the entire range of features available in the course editor.
By selecting "Course" in the drop-down menu "Create" in the "Authoring" section you will get to this course wizard. Just indicate the title and select "Create basic course with Wizard." Follow the instructions to have your course created.
Your course can now be found under "Authoring" in the "My entries" tab where you can edit it anytime within the course editor.
