Create Course SeatsΒΆ

A course seat represents an enrollment track, sometimes called an enrollment mode. For information about the enrollment tracks that edX offers, see enrollment track.

You create course seats by creating a course on the Create New Course page in the course administration tool, which is located at http://localhost:8002/courses/. After you create a course, the E-Commerce service creates the course seats that are associated with that course.
