17 How to Create a Course When creating a course for the first time in OpenClass you will either be creating the course from scratch or importing content from another Learning Management System into your OpenClass course. In this section, we will cover: Create a Course Import Content

18 Create a Course To create a new course, navigate to Course List on the Dashboard and click Create a Course. In the Create a Course window, enter your course information. Course Title (Required) Enter the full title of the new course (i.e. Introduction to Psychology 101). The course title displays under My Courses on the Dashboard for students and instructors to see. Course Code (Required) Enter a course code (i.e. PSY101, BIO450, etc.). As best practice, avoid using special characters and spaces. Credits Enter a numerical value for the number of credit hours the course will be worth. Term Enter the date range in which the term will start and end. Course Description Enter a high-level overview description of the course as it might appear in the course catalogue. Remember to click Submit, to see your new course displays in the Course List!

19 Import Content Use Import Content to easily transfer previously developed content from Blackboard, Moodle, and Angel, and import that content into OpenClass. Types of content you can import include: Text /Multimedia items Announcements HTML pages MS Office documents Threaded Discussion Topics Exams Doc Sharing Before you can import content, you first create a course in OpenClass to import your content to. Once your course is created, you are ready to export content from your other Learning Management System (LMS). When you export content from an LMS, you have the option to export and package the content in common cartridge (CC) format. Some systems offer you different export formats. To ensure a successful import from: Angel - Always select CC format. BlackBoard - Export content in either Export or Archive file format. Do not export packages in CC format. Moodle - Do not export packages in CC format. Moodle course packages are imported as MBZ files.

20 What you should know about importing content Verify you are importing from the following supported LMS versions: o Blackboard: 7.x, 8.x, 9.x o o Moodle: 2.0 (and older versions) Angel: Common Cartridge output only Allow about 2 hours for your content to transfer and upload to your course. For optimum performance, upload content in 500 MB or less. As best practice, import content for one course at a time from either one or multiple LMSs. You can import content into an empty course template (shell) or you can import content into a course containing content. By default, the Syllabus menu item type displays in the Course Menu. When you import a Syllabus, the system interprets it as a text item. This means, you will have two Syllabi: the imported text version, and the default menu item that comes with your course. MS Office documents and PDF files import as embedded content. Links to content hosted on external servers do not carry over. By default, imported exams retain their original order within the course menu hierarchy including the order or of questions and answers. Links to external sites from within an exam are also retained in the import. DocSharing serves as a repository for uploaded items the system does not identify or map to within the Course Menu hierarchy. Images, text files, audio files, PowerPoints, and so forth can reside within Doc Sharing following a content upload.

21 To import content from Blackboard, Angel, Moodle, and so forth: Go to the Course List on Dashboard and click to expand the Course Options. Select Import Content. From the Import Course Content window, select the management system from which you are importing content. Click Choose File to locate and select the content package you'd like to upload to the course. Click Import Content and the content is imported to your course.

22 Design Your Course Home Page Course Home contains many features you will use throughout the lifespan of your course. But for this guide, we will only cover the absolute essentials you need know to get a course up and running. In this section, we will cover: Upload a Syllabus Add an Introduction Post an Announcement

23 Upload a Syllabus Your online syllabus can include the same information as a traditional syllabus, such as a Course Description, Course Objectives, General Course Policies and Procedures, Grading Policies, Course Textbooks, and anything else you want to include. You can add these and other items to your online syllabus, or you can upload an existing offline Microsoft Word document into your course syllabus, which we will explain how to do here. When you upload an existing document, a link to your Word document displays in the Syllabus section of your course.

24 What you should know about Syllabus: The syllabus is a perfect place to set the tone for your online course. Make the syllabus personable and include your photo with a few paragraphs about your background and teaching style. Do you want to keep students on track throughout the semester? Create a detailed schedule outlining due dates for projects, assignments and exams. Do you want to ensure students log on frequently and participate? Reward quality participation in weekly discussions with extra credit. To create a new syllabus: 1. In the Course menu, click Syllabus. 2. Click Modify Page, and select Manage. 3. Click Upload Microsoft Word Syllabus (.doc), to upload an existing syllabus (MS word document). 4. Click Add. 5. Click Choose File to select your Syllabus. 6. Click Upload & Convert File. The system renders your file as HTML. 7. (Optional) Click Modify Page, and select View to preview your Syllabus how students will see it.

25 Add an Introduction The course introduction on the Course Home page is a friendly way for instructors to introduce themselves to students and welcome them the class. Instructors can use audio and video in the course introduction to make it more personable. For some students, this might be their first time taking a course online.

27 Post an Announcement Announcements display on your Course Home page and are listed with the most recent announcement first. Instructors can set Display Dates for course announcements. If you see an announcement one day and it's gone the next, the Display Date for that announcement might have expired. Always look for new announcements each time you log in to your course. As an instructor, you can post, edit, or delete course announcements on the Course Home page. Your students can only view announcements. To delete an announcement, you must remove the Course Home menu item from the Course Menu. If you set specific Display Dates for a particular announcement, that announcement only displays during the date range specified. This means announcements do not display on the Course Home page if the current date is before the announcement's Display Start Date or after the Display End Date. To display an announcement, you can always modify the Display Dates.

28 To add an announcement: 1. In the Course Menu, click Course Home. 2. Click Modify Page, and select Manage. 3. Click Add Announcement. 4.

The Display Dates default to the course start and end dates, so if you don't enter Display Dates, your announcement remains on the Course Home page throughout the entire course unless you delete it or change its Display Date. 7. Click Add Announcement.

To get you started, we will explain how to add the Content Page and the Uploaded Content menu item types.

33 Keep in mind as you build you Course Menu, when you add a menu item, you can choose any location within your course structure for the new item.

In the same list, when Chapter 1 is expanded to display one nested item, Chapter 2 now has an order number of 4: 6. Click Close to view menu items in their new locations in the course menu.

36 Add Content In the previous section we covered how to add a Content Page menu item type and an Uploaded Content menu item type. After you add your menu item, you are ready to add content.

Uploaded Content page, you will upload files (MS Office Files, PDF, HTML, etc.) from your personal computer to OpenClass. Add Content with Content Page Adding content to a Content Page menu item requires using Open Class s authoring tool, Visual Editor. The Visual Editor is similar to a word processing program and includes the same features as copy, past, insert hyperlink, and so forth. If you know HTML or prefer to work with code, you can switch to Visual Editor s HTML view. For advanced users, there is also an option to use the Plaint Text Editor which is meant for authoring in code only.
