Order Courses correctly

I want to order the courses correctly, and as we regularly want to edit our courses they can go out of order quickly.
our courses are named like this:

1. corse one
2. corse two
3. corse three...

What about using the category name to order with shortcode?
also I tried the plugin "Post Types Order" on a staging server, which seams to work, but does it break anything I am unaware of?

Many thanks
