A course consists of series of videos, slides, and different types of exercises. A typical premium course combines brief video lectures with hands-on coding exercises.

Creating a Course

To create a course make sure you are signed in to your DataCamp account. Once you are signed in, go to DataCamp for Teachers.

DataCamp for Teachers - Dashboard DataCamp for Teachers - Dashboard

To create a new course, click the "Add Course +" button. The following dialog will appear:

DataCamp for Teachers - Dashboard DataCamp for Teachers - Create Course dialog

Give your course a name and specify the technology it will use (one of R, Python, SQL, or Shell). Names must be all lower-case with dashes instead of spaces, such as best-course. When you are done, click "Create".


Creating the course can take a few moments.

Once the course has been created it will appear in your Dashboard:

Congratulations–you just created your first course!
