After peer review, your Model Course will be ready to share with other faculty teaching the course. You may also choose to clone the model course for your own use.
Follow these steps to make sure it’s ready to go.
- Ask a colleague to review the front end of your Model Course for any grammatical errors or navigational issues.
- Delete or disable unused content, pages, posts, categories, tags, images, or plugins. All content in your Model Course will site will be cloned so remove anything that is unnecessary or could be confusing to students or faculty.
- Test Shared Cloning. The Template you used for your model course was set up with “Shared Cloning” enabled. This means you or any faculty member should be able to go to the Course Profile and click “Clone this Course.” Test it out to see if there are any issues or if any bugs occurred in the cloning process that need to be resolved. Watch for any issues in the cloning process that could be confusing to a faculty member. Consider adjusting the default Course Description, for example.
- Prepare Faculty Instructions to accompany your Model Course. A private Faculty Instructions post has been created in the Model Course Template for this purpose. This may include additional instructions for faculty about cloning or adapting the Model Course Site for their use. It will be linked to your Course listing along with the Model Course on The COMD Pedagogy Project > Course list.
