What is the difference between a workshop and a course?

If you are looking forward to conduct a session, where you expect participants to collaborate and work on a common topic, and then please propose it as a workshop. On the other hand, if it is going to be like a class where the participants will focus on learning than contributing back, then please propose it as a course.
