How to use web page using different IDE?
I'm using pycharm and as far as i can tell there's no "preview" button which would take me to the page after i've connected to the server. My husband told me to type in localhost:8000 but I get a 404. It says that Django tried the courses/ url and the current url didn't match any of that. How do I check out the webpage if I'm not using workspaces?

I'm not familiar with pycharm, but if it's causing issues with previewing the webpage, I would recommend previewing your web page from the mac/linux terminal. Here's a link to the first page of the django tutorial with an example of starting the django server:

In PyCharm, when you run in the Terminal window:
python manage.py runserver
there should be a message appearing along the lines of:
Starting development server at http://127.0.0.1:8000/
Just click on the link, or copy paste into your browser and voila!
