Content Well: Class Schedule

The class schedule element accepts 5 parameters to control the content displayed; 1 is required, and 4 are optional. If you provide values for the optional parameters, they will over-ride the default settings:


  • subject(s) - Comma-separated list of subject abbreviations used in PeopleSoft


  • year (defaults to the current academic year)
  • quarter (defaults to the current quarter)
  • career (defaults to "all", can be limited to "GRAD" or "UGRD" classes)
  • catalog_num (a comma-separated list of one or more course catalog numbers. This parameter should be used with a single subject only.)
  • availability ("no" will suppress the display of seats available in a specific class)
  • heading (enter "heading=" if you don't want the term and year displayed, or you can supply alternate heading text here)
  • subheading (enter "subheading=" if you don't want the default "Search Results" text displayed, or you can supply alternate text here)
  • description ("yes" will display the course description text in the detailed view - default setting is "no")
  • style (default is "bluetable"; any other valid table style class will apply, or you can remove the style by entering "style=")

In this example the following parameters were provided:


Custom parameters for Year and Quarter were not provided - the element will display results for the current academic term.

Title War & Democracy: UK in WWI
Units (min/max) 5.00/5.00
Description The First World War gave birth to a range of difficult questions regarding the relationship between democratic ideals and how societies organize for modern conflicts, setting a strong pattern for the 20th Century and continuing to possess strong resonances for today. What strains and opportunities does war place upon democratic societies? Does modern patriotism enable or distort the aspirations of free societies? What forces propel individuals to assist or resist modern warmaking? This course encourages students to think of war as not an activity solely directed by generals and politicians, but rather a social and cultural event that is formed and negotiated by citizens, workers, and parents. This course places the WWI battlefront in the context of British imperial history, and especially examines how four years of fighting shaped Britons modern national and civic identity. Readings and materials cover the significance of the homefront in many forms, including: the propaganda machine, the Irish problem, public school tradition, industrial organization and trades union activity, and the women's vote campaign. Civic groups organized by peace protesters, conscientious objectors, suffragists, and striking workers will be explored alongside groups such as national service advocates, Empire leagues, Boys Scouts, and civil preparedness organizations.

Custom Parameters

Class schedule data
Setting year and quarter parameters

The data available for display in the Class Schedule element is drawn from the PeopleSoft system.  This data is organized by term; the academic term field in PeopleSoft is composed of a pair of two-digit values; year and quarter.

A guide to using PeopleSoft academic year and quarter values when selecting data:


  • 36 = 2014-2015
  • 37 = 2015-2016
  • 38 = 2016-2017


  • 00 = Fall
  • 20 = Winter
  • 40 = Spring
  • 60 = Summer

The data available for display is limited to terms with active registration periods; you can reliably use the previous and current terms, but forthcoming term data will not be available until registration appointments are scheduled and data is entered in PeopleSoft.

Display  Schedule Detail for a Specific Class

If you enter the class number as a parameter, the element will display the class schedule detail.  The "availability" and "description" parameters can also be applied in the schedule detail display.
