Courses can be owned by organizations or individuals. Owners of a course will be able to:
see the course's dashboard
toggle the course's visibility
synchronize the course and the template repo
A course's owner is evident in its URL. For example, Introduction to HTML is accessible at https://lab.github.com/githubtraining/introduction-to-html, so it is owned by the githubtraining organization.
We will refer to this URL using the shortened format :owner/:course.
Course ownership by individuals
When an individual owns a course, only that person will be able to see the course's dashboard on Learning Lab.
Course ownership by organizations
Owners of the organization, and any members of a Lab Assistants team on GitHub will see the course's dashboard on Learning Lab.
Additionally, organizations that have purchased Learning Lab have the option to create private courses. A private course:
is only visible to members of the chosen organization
when joined by a learner, will create private learner repositories
when joined by a learner, will create learner repositories only inside of the chosen organization
