In this virtual workshop, you will be introduced to the DLS DesignPlus Template. This template was developed by Digital Learning Services using DesignPlus, a third-party design tool that is integrated with bCourses. The DLS DesignPlus Template provides a consistent structure for organizing your bCourses course site founded in best practices in online pedagogy and promotes effective learning for all students by incorporating accessibility standards.
In order to access the DLS DesignPlus Template you must first attend this training session to see if it is the right fit for you. The DLS DesignPlus Template is most efficiently used by instructors who are already comfortable completing bCourses’ core functions such as editing Pages, organizing Modules, and creating, administering, and grading Assignments, Discussions, and Quizzes.
Please note that DLS is also offering the DLS Core Template designed using bCourses native tools. The DLS Core Template also offers a consistent organization that ensures students can easily access materials and engage with the course without the need for instructors to learn an additional tool. You can access the DLS Core Template and instructional materials on the Course Design Tools page without attending this training. If you’d like to learn more about the DLS Core Template, you can attend the Intro to the DLS Core Template workshop, also offered via AIS.
