Course Listings

Do you need to make a listing of the courses you are planning on offering? Our course content module allows for the addition of multiple course sections, course instructors, and course locations. This series of tutorials will lead you through the process of creating a course catalog for your Luggage site.

Before we get started, let's take a look at a finished course listing. Course listings are put into a table upon creation that allows the user to view the course identifier, title, year, and semester. Here is what our example course table looks like:

Course Locations

How to add a course location to any course

When creating a page for a course, the first thing that you should do is create the course location. Your course location will link the user to the course room's page on the Facilities Planning and Management website. You will see the course location in action when it is used to create a course section later on in this tutorial series.

Course Instructors

How to add an instructor to any course

The next course-related content that you will need to create is the course instructor page. The course instructor page allows you to provide a biography and a profile picture for the course instructor to help students learn about them. You will see the course location in action when it is used to create a course section later on in this tutorial series.

Course Sections

How to add a course section

We're almost done creating a course listing but there are still a few steps left. For this tutorial example, we're going to continue by creating a course section node. You'll be able to see how this module pulls information from all the different sources we've covered so far and brings them together into a cohesive resource.

Step 1: Creating a course section

Let's start by taking a look at all of the fields for our course section node:

Course Creation

How to pull everything together into creating a course

We're nearing the end of our course tutorial series. In this tutorial, we will bring together all of the pages that we've created so far into one course listing. If you were confused by the significance of all the components that we covered so far, this tutorial should address your questions.

Step 1: Adding the components of a course creation page

First, let's take a look at all of the components of the course creation page:


The Courses feature offers an easy and attractive way to simply display the courses that you will be offering during a given school year. The format makes it easy for users to interact with your courses list. Courses is a feature that is not turned on by default in our Luggage platform. If you would like this feature added to your site, please email and we'd be happy to add it!

Field Ecology Research and Teaching Course

Field Ecology Research and Teaching Course
Under mentor supervision, teams of undergraduate students design and complete ecological research projects in a field setting. Each team also creates a teaching activity based on their research project. Teams engage community members and K-12 students in their teaching activity during a field day, and through visits to schools and other institutions. ISU students gain experience in written, visual, and oral communication by developing research and teaching activity proposals, research reports and outreach materials, and by delivering a presentation of project results.
