      Description

      In a number of institutions I work with, there are a number of constant, time-independent courses, e.g. a library orientation course, a staff support course, etc. They do not fall into any of the three course tabs available now (current, future or past courses). Maybe a fourth tab might be necessary - it would hold courses which do not have either the start or the end date.I'm not sure what the tab might be labelled, though. Time-independent courses? Constant courses?
