Courses Content Type and Importer

Main content start

Courses do not have their own display. The Courses content type is used by the Courses Importer, which allows you to import classes from ExploreCourses to display on your /courses page or in a Lists Paragraph. You are not limited by department and can import any courses by department, tag, or other filters.

Import courses to your Stanford Site

  2. Browse by subject, e.g., accounting.
  3. Once on the course subject page, you can filter offered classes by several selection fields, e.g., winter and summer courses that are three units.
