How to Publish a New Course

When a course or class is first imported to Drupal, its status will be "not published". It will also not be visible or searchable. At that point, a Course Admin needs to follow these directions to publish the course:

To publish a course:

  1. Click on the Content link in the black Drupal menu bar
  2. Select Status = not published
  3. Select Type = SDC Course
  4. Click Filter
  5. Check the Edit link to the right of the course you want to publish
  6. The following course information should be entered before publishing:
    • Summary (optional)
    • Description
    • Keywords
    • Sponsor
    • Topic
    • Format (workshops, webcasts, conferences, etc.)
    • Continuing Education Credit
    • Setting (in-person, online, or blended)
    • Whether the course is a series
  7. Scroll the the bottom of the page and next to Publishing Options, check the "Published" box
  8. Click Save
