Q3 Course Set Up
You should be working on your Quarter 3 courses at this point, so please continue to use the attached Course Setup Checklist with our suggested timeline to ensure that all basic elements of your course are ready to go for the start of Quarter 3. Remember that detailed instructions for ALL steps can be found on the Insight NOHS Master Document (link here).
Some SUPER IMPORTANT extra notes:
- On the checklist, you will find that you must submit a Q3 Assignment List. Your list MUST mirror the format in the example list attached to this email. If you have questions, please send yours to me for approval well before the deadline
- Good news!! Many of you have asked if you can change your live session schedule for next quarter – a new live session schedule for quarter 3 is now located on the HAT, so please sign up at your earliest convenience!
- For anything that you have set up in a current course that you wish to copy over to your next course, I have attached a job aid on using the LOR (Learning Object Repository)
