Multiply total video length x 2 = _____ estimated watch timeLet’s estimate the time you will spend recording lecture videos. Total course videos = ____!

What graded assessments will you useand how much will they be worth in calculating the overall course grade?We recommend jotting down ideas for weekly assessments now but authoring them after you have recorded allvideo content for the topic. (You’ll also want to estimate the time it takes to complete the tasks per week -- as acourtesy to students.)
5. 5. Now it’s time to identify any additional resources (required or recommended) that willhelp students achieve the learning outcomes you identiﬁed.As you ﬂesh out each week, it may become apparent that a few, carefully selectedresources will be helpful to students. If you know of some already, please indicate:Week Topic Additional Resource(s)videos, readings, programs, simulations, etc.Need copyrighthelp?123456Additional Resources5
