Creating vs. Adapting Course Content

This book guides you through the process of creating content pages in your course and what format aspects to take into consideration, such as balancing text and images, using images and captions, among other items. You will also consider adapting existing course content versus creating pages from scratch.

Creating a Course from Scratch

When creating an online course from scratch, there are many elements that need to be taken into consideration to ensure a quality learning experience:

  • The page layout
  • The writing style
  • How to use examples
  • How to structure activities
  • How to use bulleted lists and checklists
  • How to use images

The next pages address each one of these in more detail.
