Drafting the Outline

The first and most important step is to ensure that your course is well-structured. An outline is a detailed plan that helps you organizing, structuring, and presenting your information in a way that students can better understand. Develop lectures that build on one another, with each subject bringing the user closer to the next.

Structuring your course into Modules and Lectures
You’ll have to decide what Modules and Lectures your course needs to include when preparing your outline. Make a list of what you want to cover in the course and what you need to teach. When you’ve done that, group individual ideas into topical groups (Modules) and use those to create a cohesive framework that takes the student from learning the fundamentals to achieving their overall learning objectives.

These groups will represent Modules, and each individual idea can be the basis of a Lecture. We recommend dividing the course into multiple Modules, each consisting of 3-5 Lectures.

It’s a good idea to have an exercise at the end of each Module to let students apply what they’ve learned.
