The Classic LMS Course has been the main course type offered on CN over the past few years. The Task tool is the central content delivery tool. It best suits instructor-led, blended learning.

Setting Up a Classic Course
Classic courses offer many robust features. We will briefly go through a few of them below and provides links to learn more about each feature.
Invite Course Members
There are two easy ways to invite members (other instructors and students) to your course.
Approach 1: click the course settings gear from the top of the course, then click Invite a Member.
Please note that this feature is only available in institution courses.
Approach 2: simply share the course URL and Access PIN (if you set up one) with the people you would like to invite. You can find the course URL and Access PIN from the About page.
Please note that when people join your course on their own, they are in the student role. You can go to the Roster to change their role and permissions.
