The Course Guide & The Open Learning Faculty Member Guide
Towards the end of the development process, you will be writing the following two guides:
  • Course Guide: providing students with an overview of the course.
  • Open Learning Faculty Member Guide: providing OLFMs with an overview of the course and answer keys to its assignments and assessments.

This vital, standard document gives students an overview of what they can expect from the course, what the course expects of them and how to succeed in completing their work successfully.

The following document provides you with an outline of everything that goes into the Course Guide. It is the SME's job to "fill in the blanks" or complete the document with the course-specific information.
