Allow LTI to create course in Ares if a student clicks on it first
LTI will create the course if an instructor clicks on the link but if a student clicks on the link it says "course not available - contact your instructor"

We have quite a few courses at our institutions that admins have to manually activate just so students can get to their readings. The instructors never log in, and there doesn't seem to be any problems with that from the perspectives of the admins or the instructors.
This could be a feature that's turned on or off in the customization manager, though, so that institutions that would have concerns could avoid turning on the feature.
