6.3. Creating and Announcing a Course Using PublisherΒΆ

..note::
This process applies to courses on the edx.org site. If your course will run on Edge, you create the course and the About page in Studio. For more information, see Creating a New Course or Creating a Course About Page.

When you are ready to create a course, you add your course information in the Publisher tool. You must add course information in Publisher as a first step in the About page process before you can add course content in Studio.

The topics in this section provide an introduction to the Publisher tool and describe the Publisher process, from the time the course team creates a course to the time the About page is published on edx.org.

For more information about how to determine information such as a course description or the course schedule, see Planning Course Information or Planning Course Run Information.
