External courses can be created if you require a course which is not connected exclusively to a standard University course with matriculated students. These can be used, for example, to allow you to maintain enrolments manually or to provide a programme-wide area.

Cours externes peuvent être créés si vous désirez un cours qui n'est pas lié exclusivement à un cours de niveau universitaire avec des étudiants inscrits. Ils peuvent être utilisés, par exemple, pour vous permettre de maintenir les effectifs manuellement ou à l'espace de l'ensemble du programme.
