What is the classes feature?

Admin now have the ability to store and manage classes within the uConnect platform! The classes content type allows titles and short descriptions of courses to be easily updated. Other relevant information, such as a featured image, professor’s name, and the amount of credits a class is worth can also be added. Individual courses can then be tagged to specific audiences, career communities, industries, and organizations, allowing classes to appear alongside other relevant resources and opportunities. 

The classes feature serves two main purposes:

  1. It stores key information about featured courses in an orderly, intelligent, and visually appealing way.

  2. By tagging your classes to career, academic, industry, or identity communities, your classes will show up among other related content, creating an integrative exploration experience for students, that connects academics with career exploration
