CourseWork 5 is based on the Sakai Project, an open-community Learning Management System with participants from all over the world. Sakai is a very powerful application, and most of us will only use a small portion of the functions. Learn the basics first, but try to extend yourself by trying out new tools to see if they can meet other needs you have. If you do run into something you don't understand, look at the help documentation on CourseWork, and on the pages here, but if you still can't figure it out, submit a helpsu with a clear explanation.
