Courses and Categories

A course on your site is an area where a teacher can add resources and activities for their students to complete a particular class. It might be a simple page with downloadable documents or it might be a complex set of tasks where learning progresses through interaction.

A course category organizes courses for your institution's site. Teachers and students can find their classes when they are organized in descriptive categories, such as by departments or topics.
