The course outlines feature allows Content Creators to create and edit course outlines. Anonymous users can browse through these outlines in a listing page view and find more details about a specific course.
Creating Terms for Vocabularies
Before creating course outlines, add terms to the following vocabularies:
Course outline category: Create terms in this vocabulary to filter course outlines by area of study (e.g. Philosophy or History).
Course outline term: Use terms in this vocabulary to filter and group course outlines by academic term. The default values are Fall, Winter, and Spring.
Course outline subject: A list of course subjects (e.g. HIST, PSYC).
Course outline academic department: A list of academic departments.

Add a menu link
