How To: Organize Courses Using Categories


Are you a company that has a large number of courses available and need a little help organizing them? DigitalChalk has a category feature that allows you to quickly, and easily, organize them all.

There are two steps in setting up categories and assigning course offerings in the categories.

Creating a category
  1. Go to the ‘Manage Courses’ tab.
  2. Select ‘Categories’ from the left side menu.
  3. You will be taken to a page with an ‘Add’ button. Click on this and then go through the process of creating a new category. You will be given the option to name the category, add a description, choose a color, and add an image.
