You can show catalogs with different views by changing the shortcode -  [cmcc_course] parameter view.

Each time you use the shortcode, choose between the different views. If the parameter view  is not present, the default setting will apply.

  • Course Catalog View [cmcc_course view="directory"]
  • Tiles View[cmcc_course view="tiles"]
  • List View[cmcc_course view="list"]
  • Table View - [cmcc_course view="table"] (this parameter is available only in the Enterprise Edition of CM Course Catalog since the version 1.4.0.)
