Publishing

CourseSales.com provides structured content management and publishing features to make it easy to write and maintain content about your courses. CourseSales.com can also be used in conjunction with popular content management systems such as MediaWiki and Joomla!. If you have specific requirements then please ask our opinion.

Course descriptions

Write a short and a long description for each type of course, with attractive layout and formatting (HTML) if you like, as well as diagrams and photographs, and reuse that content where appropriate on any of your course dates.

You can include any information that will help present your courses in their best light

File attachments

You may upload any type of file to the CourseSales.com File Management System. You may also categorise files (you may configure categories to suit your needs), specify a course type, and a course provider (useful for courses delivered by third parties).

Once a file has been uploaded you can include it anywhere on your web site. You can also easily attach it to email templates to be sent to customer, course providers, trainers or other parties.

Registration terms

Registration terms are shown to customers before they register, and are also published to the PDF version of the Registration Form once they complete a registration. You may write content under the headings:

  • Terms and conditions (for general conditions, including payment terms)
  • Cancellation / transfer
  • Substitution
  • Additional required information
    (use this to add a custom field to the registration form - e.g. to request a candidate number from a pre-requisite course - can be made optional or compulsory)

Registration terms can be made default for all courses, specific to a particular course type, or specific to a course provider (again, useful if you have courses delivered by third parties).

Course types and titles

In CourseSales.com courses are categorised by group, type and title - a three level hierarchy that makes it practical to have anything up to hundreds of different courses on offer.

You may write an HTML description at each of these levels for publishing to your web site. A typical usage scenario is:

Hierarchy Sample content - you may write much longer content

Project Management

Project Management involves planning and managing resources to deliver new outcomes in a specific time frame. Projects differ from normal day-to-day activities which are repeated systematically and are not intended to produce novel outcomes.

Resource Planning Technique

Resource Planning is an instructor-led course held over three days. Based on a case study, this course teaches you how to identify the resources that will be required to deliver a project.

It gives special consideration to mobilisation issues such as recruiting, lead times and training; the trade-off of larger team sizes versus longer projects.

This course is led by a trainer who worked as a project management in the aerospace industry for fifteen years.

Professions and trades

You may also publish content about professions or trades, and then attach particular courses to each article.

For example, you could publish an article about the profession Project Manager, and then attach the courses described under Course types and titles above to that profession.

Courses published in this manner can be searched on your public web site - for example Project Managers could quickly see all courses you offer that relate to their profession.

News

You may also write and publish articles, news stories and press releases. Again, this content can make full use of HTML for formatting and design.
