Once you've got a course and a group that you want to take that course you need to assign it. Note that an assignment is a snapshot of the course at the moment that it's assigned. Changing the course after it has been assigned will not change the assignment for the user. If you update the course you would need to reassign it to the user groups for them to get an updated version.
Step 1: Set up the assignment
Use the left hand navigation menu to go to the assignments page and click 'Set assignment'
Step 2: Assignment target
Select the course that you'd like to assign and the user group you'd like to assign it to.
Note that it is membership in a user group that decides what assignments a user sees. You can assign a course to an empty group, and members added into the group after the assignment is created will also get the assignment
Step 3: Assignment criteria
