Catalog Listings Icons

Users can view course and program icons on every listing in the Catalog. This change helps users quickly differentiate between courses and programs. Icons are also included on the listing details page.

Listings Page (Admins)

Column Adjustments

The Listings page has been adjusted with cleaner column widths and realignment of listing names and icons. To clarify confusion with two Enrollment columns, the first Enrollment column heading has been changed to Count, which clarifies the enrollment count for each listing. The Enrollments Open column heading has been shortened to Enrollment.

For programs, the Requirements page includes a slightly realigned Requirements button, which improves placement for users on both desktop and mobile devices.
