When students enter a week, they see a link for Before Class Assignments, In Class Lesson information, and a link for After Class Assignments.

Before Class Assignments prep students for their in-person meeting day. This includes course readings, videos, and assignments to bring to class. Then students review the In Class Lesson information to make sure they are aware of what will be covered in person. Lastly, the After Class Assignments link includes activities for students to demonstrate their knowledge of the course objectives. This layout helps students focus on small sections of work without becoming overwhelmed.
Weekly requirements are clearly stated for students, and video tutorials are used to explain the technical aspects of assignments. Tutorials allow students to focus on the learning outcomes and not become frustrated with the technical components of the course.
