Courses in the community site are free! They are more than just a container or web site. They are eClassrooms modeled after the physical classroom. Everything a teacher needs is easily included and, more importantly, easily modified. Don't worry about getting everything set up perfectly right away, because you can always make changes very easily. 

As an eClassroom, courses are a powerful way to easily organize digital content, web applications, web sites, links to videos and files of all types. All content is presented within the eClassroom instead of launching students all over the Internet. This applies to your favorite web apps, like Socrative, Brain Pop, Spelling City or anything else out there.

In addition to content, use the eClassroom to collaborate with your students and make your assignment process much easier.
