Course Plan And Lms Presentations
Date: 25 July 2022
A course plan is an essential ingredient of designing the delivery of the content in alignment with the objectives and desired outcomes of the course. The three primary components of a course plan are the learning objectives, assessments and instructional strategies. The plan entails a birds’ view on the course contents, objectives, outcomes, teaching pedagogy, skill enhancement activities, blueprint of the summative assessment and the references list.
The course plan assists in the initial vision and scope of a course before actually embarking on the design and development.

LMS act as a repository for subject related content and give room for asynchronous and synchronous activities. The LMS acts as a reservoir and goes hand in hand with teaching and managing the learning needs of the learners.
