An unexpected error has occurred while registering for the course. Please try again later!

I’m trying to build a course (https://lab.github.com/avcoder/text-based-poker-game/1.0.0) using Github Learning Lab and am stuck on Step 15 where it says that even in draft mode, I can test out my course, but when I do I get the error:
“An unexpected error has occurred while registering for the course. Please try again later!”

What can I do to fix it?

In addition, could I make this course private? I’m intending use it for a JS class I’m teaching at a community college.

Firstly (I know this is confusing), but you have to make the repo on your account, THEN do the github learning lab thing
Next, here is something that might help for your second problem

@avcoder Does this work? Hope it does :wink:

Nope. Still the problem remains :frowning:

Oh, sorry, I don’t really know how else to help :frowning:

@avcoder if you’re still having this issue try registering for the course (or synchronizing it) and let me know the timestamp. I’ll dig into the logs to see if I can find any further information.

May be your account isn’t verified yet. That was the issue for me. Did you get any email to verify your account? if not you can go to your GitHub account first anywhere like “create repository” or something… doesn’t matter and then re-send the email verification link. Verify it then it should work.
