The presentation addresses the utilization of course design template to produce an effective and efficient traditional classroom or online course. It is imperative that students spend the majority of their time working with the subject matter and not learning the technology and attempting to find assignments. The template utilized in this presentation creates a learning environment where students have the tools they need to succeed. This presentation will highlight how student learning is improved through examples, lectures, assignments, exams, and other course materials.
