    Description

      It would be really useful to have optional fields on the course setup page, just like the optional user profile fields.

      Example: It would be useful for us to record the College's department (e.g. "Creative Arts") and section (e.g. "Dance" or "Fine Art") with a course. We have maybe 5 or 6 departments and 40-odd sections encompassing 700+ courses.

      We do already use categories, but these are 35+ student-friendly categories so that a student can easily locate a course, but these categories have little in common with our corporate structure.

      I'm not suggesting hard-coded fields, but something more customisable, just like the optional user profiles.
