An admin can add class room and virtual class room type courses to a Learning Program. Whatever session the author has given during the creation of the course becomes the default instance. When admin adds courses to a learning program, by default it is mapped to the default instance of all the courses but admin can change the instance mapping. The number of courses added into a learning program is also visible in instances page as shown below.
