This tutorial will walk you through the 4 steps taken when using categories to organize your items on the back-end.

Step 1: Create a Category

Step 2: Create the Course, Learning Object, Event, Forum, Content, Target, Form, or Survey

Step 3: Associate the Category with the item

Step 4: Use the Category filter option to filter your list

In the Repository, categories help you to be able to sort through many pages of Learning Objects. Furthermore, you can even organize your categories so that they are easier to view. For example, you might decide to have a Parent Category called Courses and have Essentials of Communication 101 as a subcategory in addition to all other course titles offered. (see below)

The category feature allows you to outline a hierarchy of your categories, using Parent Category and subcategories. Wherever the Category drop-down menu is present, you will notice that subcategories will be indented underneath their Parent Category, see below.

The use of categories, especially in the Repository will allow for seamless access to categorized items for your convenience. For example, this is useful if you wish to pull up a list of all learning objects associated with a specific course.
