What Are Course Templates?

Course templates are files made available by Design & Development Services (DDS) to help faculty develop and post online course materials. DDS offers two types of online course templates:

  1. Standard, plain-text templates
  2. Advanced, HTML templates

Both types of templates are optimized for use in Springboard and provide faculty with sample pages and placeholder text for easy course development.

Why Would You Use Them?

  • Speed-up course development through use of sample pages and placeholder text.
  • Help meet QM standards through the use of sample pages and placeholder text.
  • Ensure visual consistency across pages.
  • Custom layouts with the advanced templates support a variety of media and provide visual interest.
  • Icons in the advanced templates improve student wayfinding.
  • Differentiate courses by applying custom colors and logos with the advanced templates.

How Do You Get Started?

In order to get started using the templates, download one of the template files linked below:

  1. Standard, plain-text templates
  2. Advanced, HTML templates

After you have downloaded the templates, follow the steps in the Springboard Course Template Handout.
