Categories Management is a tool that allows a Site Administrator to create and manage their own site-specific catalogs. The courses in these catalogs come from catalogs already enabled within the site. This may help a site define more specific catalogs for your site that makes it easier for your learners to find the training they need. This feature allows you to create custom categories for all of your courses, including Createa-A-Course.
