It has an STM32L475VGT6 MCU. I don't know how to do anything. I need to connect to the internet with the kit, get all the software, license, and anything else needed to operate the kit.
This one ?
32L476GDISCOVERY - Discovery kit with STM32L476VG MCU - STMicroelectronics
I suggest to download the user manuals first, and read them.
Then think about you preferred development toolchain - perhaps asking back.
And your Disco board probably needs a ST-Link driver update ...
No I think it's the IoT board

Hello John Karpinsky ,
Have a look to the datasheet, reference manual, User manual (link) and "Getting started with STM32L4 Series hardware development application note" related to your device STM32L475VG . In this STM32L475VG page, you have all needed Tools and software.
I recommend you to download STM32CubeL4 firmware package and STM32CUBEMX which is a graphical software configuration tool that allows generating C initialization code using graphical wizards.
Once you have your hardware and software environment ready, you could start from ready example under STM32CubeL4 firmware package, which can help you to develop your application.
I hope that this brings some help to you.
I have downloaded all of that, and I still have some questions. What Development toolchain should I use? I have downloaded the Cosmic environment, but I don’t know what to do with it. I think I have the license installed properly. I also think I have downloaded the drivers for the STM32 discovery kit. I am using a Windows PC, but I would prefer to use a MAC. But I will stick with the PC if it is easier. Is this the right way to communicate with you, or should I be using the support forum?
Is there any further explanation how to communicate with those modules in source code?
Thank you very much in advance.
I don't know how to do anything
Do you have any experience with embedded microcontrollers? Programming in general? Electronics? Comms/Networking?
For basic getting-started tips, see: https://community.st.com/thread/46923-stm32l162#comment-182758
" don't know how to do anything."
you should think of others' help to you as a multiplier to your base knowledge. If you truly knew nothing, no amount of help can change that.
So if you truly knew nothing, I would suggest that you start somewhere where you do have a body of knowledge. If taking a class in C is too advanced for you, take a class in computer education;
if college is too hard, go to a decent high school, .....
you have to put yourself in a position of knowing something so others can help. Knowing nothing is not help-able.
