Creating a course outline helps in determining how you will disseminate the course materials and in planning the type of activities your students will complete in order to meet the objectives. A course outline is a working document that will change as you develop your course and can be created in many different formats. You may prefer to use a table, a mindmap, PowerPoint slides, or a numbered list.
