If you're just getting started with CourseStorm, we recommend adding a few classes through the administration area to get a feel for how things work.
To add your first class, navigate to Catalog > Classes and click the plus button in the admin bar at the top of the screen and choose
This will launch an overlay screen walking you through the different information you need to set up your class. Each screen you'll see is discussed below.
As the name suggests, this screen lets you set up the basics for a class: name, instructor, price, etc. You can even add Instructors and Locations inline on this form so you never jump away from the process of adding your class.
For the photo, you can either upload one from your computer or, even better, use our built-in high-quality, royalty-free image search.
Here you'll select the schedule information to display for your registrants. Click once in the calendar to select the start date and select an end date by clicking it next. You'll know the date is properly entered when all of the days in between fill in automatically to indicate the date span. You can even use the arrows at the top of the schedule to move forward and backward in time.
This screen provides controls of the enrollment of the class, letting you specify the number of available seats and controls over when registration ends.
On the final screen, you can select which categories you'd like to place the class in. Categories are used in your online catalog to make browsing easier for your students. Here you can not only specify the categories, but create them as well. You also have the option of creating subcategories if you so choose.
And that's it. Congratulations -- you've added your first class!
