Grouping Courses by Terms/Semesters (How-to)

Grouping your courses by term/semester helps organize your course list. As an instructor, you may have multiple courses with the same title. Arranging them by term can greatly reduce confusion as you can collapse past terms, yet still easily access them. Grouping by term helps differentiate the courses, but you can still make further changes to the Course Name if needed.
