my website have list of courses and every course repeat many times in the year

so the site structure will be like this

  • level 1 menu of courses category

    • level 2 menu of courses name in each category

      • level 3 course page contain course outline and menu of course events

        • level 4 event page for every event

cause every course repeat many times in the year so i made every date as event

my question is what i should select in schema.org for each level i but the category as SiteNavigationElement

can i tag the courses menu as course and every course page as course ?

and the event menu as event and each event as event ?

Hello Bassel,
firstly, extending schema for the description of educational courses is a work in progress, happening at https://www.w3.org/community/schema-course-extend

We are looking for real-world examples to test the practicality what we develop, so you would be very welcome to join us.

Yes, we are modelling this as a Course with several CourseInstances; CourseInstance is a subtype of schema.org/Event Course is a subtype of schema.org/CreativeWork.

Yes, you can, but you should make sure that you provide a url property for the courses in the menu which matches the url of the course description page. However, I am not sure that there is much benefit.

Perhaps you are thinking of how to define the structure of the course, in which case you might want to move away from seeing this list as purely a SiteNavigationElement, or you might want to create a page for each level of the course.


and the event menu as event and each event as event ?

Likewise, yes, but...

You are also touching on a use case that we have not yet explicitly addressed, of how to describe the individual events of a CourseInstance (see https://www.w3.org/community/schema-course-extend/wiki/Outline_use_cases#use_case_1.3_refining_UC1_by_time_of_events )

Hope this helps, Phil
