Create a Course category


For some EasyCampuses, the default Category (Campus Courses) is sufficient. You may need to create additional categories to meet your needs. For example, a gardening site might offer categories of courses such as Trees, Plants, Herbs, etc.
Do not delete the default category as courses from the wizard will always be placed in this locale. This tutorial will show you how to move courses into your new categories.


Before You Begin


  • Decide upon a name for each category.
  • Determine whether you need to move existing courses into new categories.

Begin


To Create a New Category:

  • On the Site Administration menu, click Courses and then click Add/edit courses. The Campus Courses screen will display.
If you have a Tools menu, you can select Create a New Course Category instead
  • If you selected Add/Edit Course, click the Add New Category button. The screen will change and you will be able to define your new category.
  • In the Category name box, enter name of the new category.

Example: Trees

  • If you like, you can fill in the other boxes on this screen but you don't need to do so to create a new category successfully. At the bottom of the page, click the Save Changes button. You will return to the Campus Courses screen and will see your new category. Repeat these steps for each category you want to create.

To Move Courses Between Categories:

  • On the Site Administration menu, click Courses and then click Add/edit courses. The Campus Courses screen will display.
  • Click the name of the category that contains the courses you want to move. The screen will change and you will see the courses contained in the category.
  • Click the checkbox next to each course you want to move.
List of courses
  • From the drop-down box, select the name of the category into which you want to move the course or courses. The course or courses you selected will be moved into the category you selected.
