  3. Select the “Add New” button at top of page

    Add curriculum steps 4-7 screenshot

  5. Edit Permalink. EXTREMELY important!  This is the URL for the course, will remain the same from year to year. 
    • Will need to edit the default as it will use the entire title for the address
    • Do NOT use years in the naming, keep it simple and clean, yet descriptive enough to identify or make it easy for someone to type in a web browser. 
    • All lowercase in naming, avoid “_” or symbols
    • http://ce.pharmacy.wisc.edu/pd/coursename
  6. Course description. The description should remain general for the overarching theme of the conference/course, not specific to a given year.  The curriculum page is always available with general information even when there is not an active Instance page.  There will be exceptions to this for one time offering courses.
  7. Categories – Important setting!  This setting determines where the Curriculum will show in the Catalog.
    • Healthcare Industry
      • H – Blended program
      • H – Conferences
      • H– Short courses
      • H – Web based programs
      • H – Webinar

  11. Do you want this course to be featured?  This field will allow a course to appear in a drop-down menu in WordPress which will allow web editors to designate the course as featured on pages such as the home page or landing pages.

  12.  Customization Available?

  13. Certificate Program Assignment.  Currently there is only one for Industry, and the faculty should let you know if it needs to be included.  When in doubt ask.
