Setting Up Instructions for Resources in your Course

Friday, Feb. 4 at 11 a.m.  

Online courses often have external resources such as links to a website but are you telling students what to do with that material? An area in online classes that consistently comes up in reviews is instructions. This workshop will go over what you need to include in your course when you direct students to external resources and will give sample language to include right away in your class. (Standard A9)
