Use a Course Map to Design Your Course

Use a Course Map to Design Your Course

Translating your in-person course to a remote instruction format can be a daunting task, and planning ahead is key. Consider using a Course Map to begin designing your course. DLS uses this tool when working with instructors who are developing fully online courses for the first time, and it can be useful for instructors preparing to teach remotely, as well. 

Update the Homepage Navigation Bar

Update the Homepage Navigation Bar

Including a navigation bar on the homepage of your course will ensure that students have access to all of the content in an easy-to-navigate way. They won’t have to waste time digging through files or scrolling through lists and are less likely to get lost searching for key resources when these items are included in the navigation bar.

Import Content from a Previous Course

Import Content from a Previous Course

In addition to using the DLS Core Template, in bCourses you can import content such as assignments, modules, pages, and discussions from previous courses using the Course Import tool. This is a quick way to transfer previously created content into your new course site to compliment the template resources.
