  • Each course listing in catalog is independent, even when it is associated with a program listing. Depending on how you want to create a program, you will have to set visibility and enrollment details for each course requirement. This lesson will show you various scenarios you can create for a program listing.

    Note: Even if you restrict course visibility in a program listing, when a student reaches the registration page, the names of all course listings will still be shown.

    Manual Catalog Guide
  • To create a program, you must add requirements, which are the courses that students are required to finish to complete the program. Requirements can also include other programs added as subprograms. Learn how to manage program requirements.

    When adding requirements, courses and programs are set to be completed in the order they are added. However, you do have the option to allow students to complete the requirements in any order.

    Manual Catalog Guide
  • Requirements are the courses that students are required to finish to complete a catalog program. Within a program you can view current requirements and add or delete requirements.

    Each course listing in catalog is independent, even when it is associated with a program listing. Each requirement within the program has its own visibility and enrollment details. Learn how catalog requirements appear in program listings.

  • If you set an enrollment cap as part of adding a course or adding a program, you can enable a wait list for the listing. A wait list allows students to add their names to a list to join a course or program when the enrollment cap has been reached. Learn more about enrollment cap limits in Catalog.

    When a student drops out of the course or program, the first student on the wait list will be added to the course. You can manage each course or program and view the list of students who have added their names to the wait list. Learn more about the wait list process for students.

    If no students drop a course or program, you can manually add students to a course from a wait list by changing the enrollment cap.

    Manual Catalog Guide
  • When you create a course or program listing, you can set an enrollment cap for that course or program. Enrollment caps let you set a limit to the number of students who can enroll in the course or program. A wait list can be added to a listing as part of an enrollment cap.

    When an enrollment cap is added to a listing, the enrollment number always begins at zero, regardless if students are already enrolled in the listing. Please make sure that you set your enrollment cap before inviting users to enroll for the listing. Catalog does not verify enrollments against any users who may already be enrolled in a course or program. Users who are already enrolled in a course or program when the enrollment cap is added will not appear in the enrollment count for that listing.

    Notes:

    • Enrollment caps are applied per listing.
    • Course and program listings can have separate enrollment caps, regardless if a course is listed individually or as part of a program.
    • If a course is listed individually for enrollment and as part of a program, and both the program and the course have enrollment caps, the total number of enrollments allowed would be the sum of those cap limits.
    • For the wait list feature to take effect, students must drop courses from the Catalog dashboard. If a student drops a course from the Canvas dashboard, the course will be dropped, but the wait list feature will not know that a spot has become available in the course or program and will not notify the student next in line.

    How do I manage catalog listings?

    You can manage all courses and programs in Canvas Catalog on the Listings page. The Listings page shows an overview and status of all course and program listings. You can also add a new course or program.

    An institution's catalog is always public facing, even if students are not logged in. However, institutions can manage the visibility of each listing in their catalog.

    How do I add a category to a catalog?

    When managing catalog categories, you can create categories for your catalog and subcatalogs. Categories are created from tags added to course or program listings, as well as subcatalog names.

    Any categories in the parent catalog can automatically apply to subcatalogs. However, you can choose to create your own categories for a subcatalog.

    • When viewing the parent catalog, the subcatalog list displays all subcatalogs in the account.
    • When viewing a subcatalog and inheriting categories is disabled, the subcatalog list is filtered to only show subcatalogs that descend directly from the subcatalog you are viewing.
    • The tags list always shows tags from all subcatalogs across the entire account.

     

    Note: In subcatalogs, you cannot add a new category if the subcatalog is inheriting categories from another catalog.
