How do I create a Direct Delivery section?

If you don't want to link your LMS for grade syncing, learn how you can create a Direct Delivery section

To create a Directly Delivery section you will need an Independent Instructor account.

Enroll as an Independent Instructor

In order to setup an Instructor account, educators must first setup an Independent Learner account then contact support and request that an Argos Administrator give that account the ability to Create Direct Delivery Sections.

First, Create a new Independent Learner Account by going to Learner and Educator sign in page and select Create an Account.


  1. Click the Create an Account link. 
  2. Provide the information requested, then click Register
  3. Check your email and click the link to confirm your account. You will be redirected to Argos and may now log in with your credentials. 
  4. After signing in, you will be taken to the My Courses Page as a Student. 
  5. Next, after creating your Independent Learner account, you must request access to create Direct Delivery sections as an educator.
    • Make a request by contacting Support here
    • When making a request, please provide the email you used to establish your account and a brief statement explaining how you will use the platform for instructional purposes.
    • Please allow 24-48 hours for instructor access to be granted.

Create a Direct Delivery Section

After your account has been given Educator privileges, return to Argos and sign in. You will now see a New Section button.
