I'd disagree, possibly.

There really is only 1 "lon-capa course".

But the students and the school might list several courses and all
of these seperate courses are being run through single lon-capa course
which the section indeifieras are used to customize the experience
by use of parameters.

It is a technical quibble but since we are discussing this in the
context of the lon-capa 'Create Course' screen I thought being
pendantic might be important.
