Course Requests

As an administrator, you can use the Course Request feature to set the default category for course requests, whether users can select a category when requesting a course, and who can receive notification of course requests. A Request a new course button will be available on the All courses page.

If course requests are enabled, by default all authenticated users can make course requests. See Course requester role for details of how to restrict users who can make course requests.
