Summary from 10/23/22 Announcement

The course skeleton template is intended for faculty to use as a starting point to build their virtual, hybrid, hyflex, or web-enhanced face-to-face classes and models and supports quality practices using Brightspace D2L. The course skeleton template provides the essential “bones” of a course including the most up-to-date course homepage that includes an easily editable instructor widget as well as access and instruction to accessible and mobile-friendly HTML templates. This allows faculty to be flexible and creative in their curriculum and ensures that their content is accessible and adaptive to mobile environments. In addition to the Skeleton Course Template please make use of the Virtual Course Readiness Cheat Sheet and the resources available at this website.  Support for how to use the course skeleton template will be provided at each of the campuses in the FSRC or CRC. As well, ongoing training sessions on how to use the course skeleton template will be provided through the TLC.
