    2. creating-courses-in-moodle-turn-editing-on Before any courses can be added, "editing" will need to be turned on. Go to the settings section on the left and click Turn on editing.
    3. creating-courses-in-moodle-new-course Next there will be a button titled Add a New Course. Click the button and the Edit Course Settings page will load.
