Personal Course Quota
Free Personal Courses
- accommodate a maximum of 35 members,
- remain active for 6 months. After 6 months, students can still take the course, but the course instructor will not be able to manage the course (i.e. invite new course members, edit tasks, and post).
Course instructors may upgrade a free personal course to a paid personal course at $9/month for a minimum of six months. A free personal course can accommodate a maximum of 75 members.
Paid Personal Courses
In addition to the two free personal courses, each individual CN user is allowed to create two paid personal courses--one Classic LMS course and one Pathway LMS course. These two courses do not include courses upgraded from free personal courses. Each paid personal course can:
- accommodate a maximum of 75 members,
- remain active for 6 months. After 6 months, once the course expires, students can still take the course, but the course instructor will not be able to manage the course (i.e. invite new course members, edit tasks, and post).
Course instructors may renew a paid personal course at $9/month for a minimum of six months. Instructors may renew as many times as they want.
