Course Development Tips
- provide electronic copies of your text documents. We do not have time to make electronic copies of hand-written work.
- self-designed graphs and charts may require media support. Let your instructional designer know if this is the case.
- review the activity section to make sure it is consistent with the slides, self-assessment (defined as practice problems and cases), video lecture, and other course components you develop.
- list all copyright required. Do not include copyright items you will not use in the course outline/blueprint. Note: We require time to obtain copyright material; but, with tight timelines do not have the resources to obtain copyright for items not being used in the course. Therefore, please review your copyright materials in the course outline/blueprint to make sure it is accurate. Feel free to add required copyright items as you develop the modules; but, only the required and not optional items. Optional items can be included for the second offering of the course.
- use the slide template. Refer to the Multimedia Information on the wiki.
- review the multimedia information before developing Camtasia lecture. Contact Bob Byrne before you start and provide him a copy of your first video for feedback.
