Understanding Courses and Sections

I am brand new to Canvas, and am responsible for exporting our data to it. I do not understand how courses and sections should be set up. For example, we have courses where there can be multiple instructors, and I don't understand why or how we need to create a new course for each section that is taught by a different instructor. Any help would be much appreciated!


Two bits of info about this I found:


If a course is taught by one instructor, sections can remain under one course. However, if each section is taught by a different instructor, those sections will need to be housed under separate courses.


A course can only exist in one term and one account only.


Thank you,
