Hi Erik, I'm a newbie myself.

You can use the studio to create courses. If you run your own edx site, 
there should be a studio you can use to create courses, I think it's 

If you create courses in the studio.edge.edx.org site, you can export the 
course out as a gzip tarball. Then you just login to your local edx server 
as the admini and import the course.

There's a lot of documentation to read through.
