This is what I thought as well, but I got stuck leading me to think I should 
implement the information as meta data. I get a forbiddenAttribute error (see 
below) after adding a course and trying to enter the newly created folder. 
Could you please tell me what I missing here.

Many thanks!

<!-- Interface -->

class ICourse(IContainer):
    """Store information about the course and store participants"""
    
    contains('cr.interfaces.IParticipant')
        
    shortDesc = TextLine(
        title = u'Short description',
        description = u'Short description about the course.',
        required = True
        )

class IParticipant ... etc.

<!-- Implementation -->
