1. Plan beforehand

Before starting to build a course in your learning environment, plan a clear beginning, ending, target group and structure for the course. Define what the students should learn during the course by listing learning objectives and how to accomplish them. By listing the lessons and topics in order, you’ll get a more concrete understanding of how the course will look like. You can also model the learning path for instance with a timeline, either on paper or with a suitable device. Finally, check your plan with a person who is not familiar with the topic.

After the planning phase, write the content and finish pictures, videos, quizzes and interactions before the final compilation of the course. The more material you have before the actual assembly of the course, the easier it is for you to focus on going through the system when putting the course together. When checking the course, write down the time spent on reading and interactions. The student should know the duration of the course already from the front page.
