How can I create a new course within Lt?

If you have an Instance Administrator or Course Administrator account you will be able to create new courses. People with Author accounts don’t have the privilege of being able to create new courses. 

To create a new course select the '+' button next to 'Courses' from the Admin page, and enter the course name details:

servlet.ImageServer?id=015w0000005sH9k&oid=00D20000000HncM

You’re now the Administrator for this course and can add others as authors or students.
