How to Edit the Catalog

Here are some instructions on how to edit your content in the catalog. Please contact Catalog Editor Laura Lewis Brown at llbrown@towson.edu if you need help. There is also a more extensive help guide for Users/Editors if you click on Help from the editing toolbar. 

Page Body

"Page Body" tends to be the center of activity for a page. It’s here where most of the text, images, and structured content can be added or edited. The "Page Body" tool works like a standard word processor tool.

How to Access and Edit the Page Body

1. Click Edit Page on the top left corner of the screen to reveal the CourseLeaf toolbar (https://help-stage.courseleaf.com/gettingstarted/courseleaf-toolbar).

2. Select the "Page Body" tab from the CourseLeaf toolbar located across the top of the screen. This will prompt an editing environment to open where a user can edit the content on a specified page.

Note: There may be additional tabs in the CourseLeaf toolbar with an icon, for example Four-Year Plan, Learning Outcomes, representing different areas of the page that can be edited. Any item in the CourseLeaf toolbar with an icon is a Page Body editor for a different part of the page.

3. Begin typing text  and making your edits.

4. Click Ok to save your work.

5. Click Start Workflow to send your page edits for approval and to make them live. You may start workflow as many times as you want, but you may want to wait to click Start Workflow until you (and anyone else editing the page) are done with your edits for the round.

Copy and Paste Text from Another Source

A user can easily move text into the "Page Body" from another document, such as Microsoft Word or WordPerfect.

1. Copy (Ctrl+c) the text from the desired document, then position the cursor in the "Page Body"

2. Click the "Paste" button or paste (Ctrl+V) the text into the new window provided.

3. Use the Word processing toolbar to reformat as necessary.

4. Click OK.

Editing a Four-Year Plan of Study

For those of you using CIM, this works just like a Course List, except that the plan of study is set up by year and term.

  2. Click Edit page in the top left of your tan Courseleaf toolbar.
  3. Click Edit “Four-Year Plan of Study” on the page.
  4. Double-click the blue border of the list that is to be edited.
  5. Use the popup window to make changes to the “Plan of Study Grid”
  6. Click Ok to save your changes.
  7. Click Start Workflow to submit for approval.
     

Editing Learning Outcomes

  5. Click Ok to save.

The Requirements tab of your pages features content that is housed in CIM. That means to edit it you must use CIM.

To make changes to this content:

  3. Click on Edit Page in upper left corner.
  4. Click on Edit CIM Program Requirements. 
  5. Make changes in CIM. 
  6. Click Ok.

After you hit Start Workflow, your program changes will move to the next person in the approval chain. After the final required approval is obtained, the program changes will be reflected on the respective catalog page.
