Developing a Course for Remote and Online Learning (Brightspace and Moodle versions)

Developed in conjunction with the University of Manitoba, a Framework Course is the starting place for your course development. It contains examples in each of the basic Brightspace and Moodle tools (Grades, Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions, Content, Announcements) that can be edited to quickly get your course up and running. Three versions of the Framework course are available, for both Brightspace and Moodle, which contain examples that align to several disciplines.

Every framework course will contain standard components that assist an instructor in meeting both Quality Matters requirements, and best practices for online and remote learning.
