The Learning Accelerator is one of the various ways you can create a new course. Using the Learning Accelerator enables you to quickly create a course from a set number of templates. These templates provide a broad range of scenarios you may wish to use, from using social polls to creating in-course menu pages.
The layout, course structure, and settings from the template you choose are automatically applied to your new course when you use Learning Accelerator. You are then able to apply your own Style to the template and insert the content to the pages that are relevant to your learners.
If you'd like to find out more about how to create your own templates, see Creating a Template.
