We understand that it can be challenging to find the time to create or redesign a course in Cougar Courses. Particularly in online courses, a consistent and easy to navigate course can make things much easier for both you and your students. To this end, we have created an online course template. The template can be restored into your empty course, or merged with existing course content. It includes many of the elements recommended in the Quality Learning and Teaching guidelines used extensively in the CSU, and contains instructions on how to customize the template for your course. Below you’ll see some screenshots of the course.
Most likely you have already been enrolled in this container, but if not, we have set the course to guest access, so you can self-enroll in the course. Check it out and if you decide to use it, download the backup file we've added to the course and restore it into your course to edit to fit your needs. If you do use it, we would love to hear your feedback and any suggestions for improvements: firstname.lastname@example.org.
