With your Course Strategy and Course Goals set, it’s time to create the Outline of your course. This will be the backbone of your course. Your students should be able to look at the outline you’ve created and understand what to expect from the course. Use this worksheet to start planning!
Additionally, we encourage you to start thinking about what kind of activities or resources you’d want to add. We’ve heard from students that they find a course more helpful when there’s a clear example or set of activities that supplement their learning. Keep this in mind early, because one of the last tasks is to create one of the activities you mention in your outline!
