Creating a course using a template

Now that we’ve made our first template, let’s make a course using it. Following the steps in how to create a course, at the bottom we can now choose our new template Your default template, and click save.

Once saved, we can see that the global footer is now populated with the content from the template. Remember, this is copied from the template. If you change the global footer in the template later, this course won’t change.

Next, click on the pages tab and we can see the two pages we created in the template. Again, these are copies of the pages from the template.
