Available courses or training are displayed as vertical boxes that contain an image, the title of the course, a course teaser, the logo of the department offering the course or training, and the price of the course. This is called a Course Listing.
Course Listing Image
The course listing image contains the title of the course, a banner that distinguishes if the course is self-paced or face-to-face, and a circular graphic that distinguishes if the course is required.
The course teaser is a summarized description of the offered course. It may also include the date and time the training will be held (if the training is face-to-face), and the department the course is sponsored by.
DISTINGUISH BETWEEN ONLINE AND FACE-TO-FACE COURSES
Courses listed on Catalog are either online or face-to-face. To distinguish between which courses are offered online or face-to-face, look in the title of the course.
