  4. Choose a Program for your course.
  5. (Optional) Add or remove Test Students, as desired. A default student is created based on your name and email. You may change both of these fields.
    Remember, Test Student names and emails are visible in the Classlist, so don't use anything you don't want your students to see.
  6. Click Next.

Step 4 of 6: onQ Tools (Optional)

If you chose to Copy a Course in Step 2, skip this step. (The tools from your copied course will be copied into the new course.)
