Find best-in-class content and offer it to your students through four different course creation templates.

Once you have logged in, you can begin to create course templates. You can organize your content to align with a pre-existing course structure by utilizing:
  • Learning objectives, outcomes, or competencies
  • Traditional textbook organization (by entering in the relevant textbook ISBN)
You can add or delete resources at any time and provide content instructions to assist students.

To create a course, go to Courses and choose + Create a Course or Lesson, where you will be presented with four ways to create a course. No matter which method you use, you can always share your course content with others, align courses with teaching objectives, and select additional content at any time.
