About This Section
The Curriculum [smart section] displays all published chapters and lessons for the selected course. It does not include draft content and will automatically update if changes are made to your chapters or lessons in the Course Builder. You can use it to give prospective students an overview of the course, allowing them to better judge its contents and length before deciding on a purchase.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are some lessons missing from my Curriculum?
The Curriculum [smart section] will only display published lessons and chapters. If any lessons are missing, it is likely they are currently in a draft state.

Can my students use the Course Curriculum to open up individual lessons?
No; the Curriculum section is purely informational, and does not include any navigation or links into the actual course.
