What is a course outline?
Course outline is a more interactive way of presenting your course/programme events and accompanying key information. It lives on Canvas as a page for students to use daily or continuously as point of access to lectures, webinars and similar.

It should not contain pre-work or any similar large documents that are currently held on Canvas. For pre-work, use the pre-work template.

Here is an example of a finished course outline: SEP Course outline.


How to create a course outline?
This template is made of pre-set content blocks. Each content block contains several columns. These hold text, buttons, images, video, audio, and animations.  All you have to do when building a page is choose and add your preset blocks, and insert your own content i.e. replace the placeholder text, image or video with your own.

Below is a short set of instructions that you can refer to whilst you're building. When you're finished, you can delete both of these content blocks.

As you scroll down, you will see that some content blocks have already been placed. You can add your own content to these and end up with a finished outline. Each block contains guidance on how to use it.

Please save your progress often.
Instructions
This template is made of pre-set content blocks. Each content block contains several columns. These hold text, buttons, images, video, audio, and animations. All you have to do when building a page is choose and add your preset blocks, and insert your own content i.e. replace the placeholder text, image, or video with your own.

Please save your progress often. To save, use the floppy disk icon on the top right of the screen.

View modes

At the top centre of the page, you have a choice of two modes:
- Edit mode - select this mode when you want to add a content block or edit text, images, video or other content.
- Design mode - select this mode when you want to duplicate, move, or remove a content block or a column.

Design mode
When in design mode, mouse over or click on the content block or column to reveal the blue block-specific menu. This menu will allow you to move, duplicate, or delete the selected block or column.

If you are getting big gaps between content blocks, select Design mode, and move the mouse around. You might have a hidden leftover block. They will look like a thin blue line. Click on the blank column and then the bin icon to remove it. It is good practice to make one last pass in search for these once you have completed your LearnBrix.

Edit mode
The Edit mode allows you to edit the content within blocks and chapters. Select this mode and then mouse over the relevant block to reveal the black block-specific menu. If that menu doesn’t appear, try clicking outside of the block and then mousing over it again.

Adding a new content block
To add a new content block, mouse between content blocks until the blue “+” appears. Clicking on the “+” will open a menu with all the available pre-set content blocks. Click on the desired content block to add it to the page.

Editing a content block
While in Edit mode, mouse over the content block to reveal the block-specific menu. The options in this menu will depend on the type of content block e.g. if the block contains an image, the menu will contain the ability to change that image.

This menu will also contain buttons to move, duplicate or delete the block. If you wish to perform any of these three actions, we recommend switching to design mode instead, as it offers more precision and better results.

Editing and formatting text
This is a simplified web-development tool, so text editing will behave somewhat differently than what we are used to when using Word. The builder does not save automatically, so there is also no “undo” and “redo” function. Please remember to save often. There is also no spell-check so make sure your text is correct. You can do this by typing it into Word and then pasting into the builder. It is advised to avoid applying formatting in Word to ensure it gets copied over correctly.

If you are copying and pasting text, use keyboard shortcuts instead of the right-click menu:
- Copy text: Ctrl + C
- Paste text: Ctr + V
- Cut text: Ctrl + X
- Select all text in the column: Ctrl + A

If you are copying from Excel, copy the cell contents, not the whole cell. (Go into the cell and select the contents, or select the contents from the cell content bar in the ribbon.)
 
To edit the text, click on the text area in the block and start typing. Highlight a section of text to reveal the text editor menu.

If the piece of text is already formatted, click on the same formatting button to deselect it. For example, if the text is already in Bold, click on “B” for bold to deselect it and remove the formatting.

Introduction

Use this Introduction block to welcome the participants to the course and set the scene. Outline the page's content, how to use it, specific software required to join events, where to access their materials, and your contact details for any questions. Replace the link in the button with a download of all event calendar entries. The menu button at the top left will get populated automatically as you add or rename sections and sub sections. Below is a populated example.

[Example]  Welcome to the Senior Executive Programme. Please scroll down for full descriptions of each session, speaker biographies, and the links to join each session. Each event session is run via Zoom, which we recommend you test (and download for a more stable experience) in advance. Get in touch at execedsystems@london.edu with any questions.

Please use Canvas to access pre-reading and materials for each session.



Use the menu button, at the top left-hand corner of the page, to quickly jump to each day of the SEP programme.

You can also welcome your participants to the programme with a welcome video. Depending on the context, this could either be presented by Faculty, the Programme Director, or a senior sponsor from the client's organisation. The aim of the welcome video is to set the scene, excite participants about what's to come, and set their expectations.

To change the video, select Edit mode and then mouse over it to reveal the black block-specific menu.
