When rendering a template, the render shortcut takes a context dictionary as an optional third argument. The keys of the dictionary become available as references in the template, and the dictionary values are the referenced objects.

So {‘course’: course} says allow me to use “course” as a variable in the template to reference the object course that was just created.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
