myCourses Semester Template

A myCourses shell designed to get you started creating or organizing course content for a semester-long course is available.

While the shell has been developed for online courses, it can be used for on-campus and blended courses as well.

This shell contains:

  • An introduction module containing typical syllabus content divided into short topics, with text that you can customize
  • 17 weekly modules containing a Weekly Plan
  • A mid-course assessment in Week 7
  • Three different course home page designs to choose or customize
