A learning system may be used to dynamically create courses tailored to the needs of a learner. In one implementation, the learning system may dynamically create, assemble, and/or build new temporary courses from the structural elements of an existing course according to the specific needs of a learner. The learner's needs may be expressed using a budget and other criteria provided by the learner. Using the budget and criteria, the learning system may identify existing structural elements that may be used to assemble a dynamic course. After the course is assembled, the course may be temporarily stored and presented to the learner using the learning station.
