Additional fields in the courses

Additional fields in the courses
 

Courses by default contain such fields as Name, description, category, visibility and others. I want to add some fields of different types, for example "Specialty" (multiple choice from the new "Specialties" table), "Learning Objective", "Listener Training Level", "Requirements to the classroom", and others. How can this be done? Are there any plugins?

Example for Wordpress: Plugin "Advanced Custom Fields"

I'm not aware of any plugins that do this, but there was an attempt to get it into Moodle core a while back (MDL-34634).

You could try the Metadata plugin - https://moodle.org/plugins/local_metadata

It allows extra fields to be added to several Moodle contexts, including course.
