    notes

    We decided to put this public-facing page in the “Course Contents” section at the top of every course.

    The following example is from Principles of Marketing. Note that, beneath each module title, the list includes short titles for enabling outcomes along with any assignments (written and/or discussion board). No WIMs/PITs.

    Modules should be numbered.
