What's the difference between a Course and a Section?

  1. Within CodeHS, a Course is a sequence of curriculum that your students will work through. Courses are made up of Assignments.

  2. Each Course can have multiple Sections.

  3. Within CodeHS, a Section is a group of students working on a Course.

  4. An Assignment is any module, lesson or activity that students (within their Sections) work on as part of their Course.

In other words, a Section is a group of students (like a class), while the Course and Assignments are the curriculum content that they are working on.
