Great Tips to Makeover your Online Etudes Course Site #3

3. Add Coursemap Headers

Imagine eating a 7 course meal 3 times a day for 16 weeks. Now pretend that the chef randomly selects each course from a hat and serves them in that order. Maybe you get dessert first, followed by sushi then a Big Mac. That might be good for a Dr. Seuss character, but my guess is your stomach would be turning sooner than later. Unfortunately, your coursemap may be just as indigestible to your students. Lucky for you there’s an easy fix, coursemap headers.

In Coursemap:

  1. Click on any one of the green plus sign icons on the right of the page.
  2. Type “Week 1” in the rectangle square that appears.
  3. Click and drag all the items you’d like your students to complete for the first week under the header.
  4. Repeat this process for the remaining weeks then click the accept positions button near the top.

Now when your students look at your coursemap they will see neatly organized activities in easily digestible weekly bites. Bon Appetit!
