Update general course settings
By default, this page (a series of vertical tabs) displays the main Course settings where you can:
enter or edit the course title,
enter/edit the general category to which the course belongs,
choose the language in which the course interface is set (this can be set to language other than that of the platform, - particularly useful for a “total immersion” language course).
enter a Department name and/or web address
add a picture to be displayed in the course catalogue (important for “marketing” your course)
choose a stylesheet for this course from a drop down menu (by default that of the platform)

Note : the D**epartment** is a feature for which support has been dropped so far. Depending on visual styles, the department might appear as a link in the campus header (for old, deprecated styles). This is all a department will change. In more recent version of Chamilo 1.8, if you need to manage courses by departments inside a university, we recommend you use the multi-url feature, described in the administrator's guide, little brother of this guide.
