15.7 Organizing content
If the number of courses on your system becomes too large to handle
comfortably, you can create groups of courses. Similar to the User Profiles,
Course Profiles are the tools used to group courses.
15.7.1 Course profiles
An administrator can create course profiles and categories in the Profiles module
to provide a way for users to search the course catalog by category. You can do
this in a few steps:
1. Create course categories and course profiles.
2. Assign course profiles to courses.
3. Check the Show course in catalog option for the courses.
You can create course categories and profiles in the Profiles module (see
Figure 15-13).
Figure 15-13 Creating and managing course profiles in the Profiles module
You can assign course profiles to new or existing courses in the Planner module
(see Figure 15-14 on page 225).
