We know that many of you run your classes in seasonal chunks — fall, spring, or winter catalogs are common among our customers. Just like you already do offline, you can organize your classes the same way on your website using catalogs.
Setting your classes for the coming semester, but aren’t ready to put them on the site just yet? No problem. When you create a catalog, you can specify the start and end dates for it to be visible on your public-facing site, allowing you to start adding classes and get them perfect for presentation ahead of time. Schedule your catalog to display on a certain date and we handle the rest.
It's important to note that in CourseStorm, "catalogs" are an organizational tool for the Admin User. Think of catalogs as "folders" in your Admin Menu that you can use to organize and store your classes. You can create as many catalogs as you wish and label them in any way that works for you. On your public-facing site, your students will not see any labeling pertaining to catalogs, nor will your students know which catalog your classes are stored in. The student's browsing experience on your site will continue to be streamlined and organized to show all active, publicly-visible classes in catalogs with current run dates, regardless of which catalog each class is stored in.
