In a previous blog post, we asked you to tell us what you would like to see in upcoming blogs. One request was “Best Practices” within MYcaert.com. Recently, we’ve received a few requests on how to create a course. This blog will focus on the best practice of creating a course, and example courses.
Upon logging into MYcaert, you will land on a screen with each subscribed library shown. From this screen you have several options to create a course. A very simple option, is to create a course from a sample course outline. By hovering over My Courses, you will find several Sample Course Outlines to the right. You can select one of those course outlines, and select “Make a copy and save it to my courses”. You can rename the course, reorder the lessons, and remove lessons, or add additional lessons to the outline.
Another way to create a course, from home screen, is selecting a library. For example, select Animal, Plant, and Soil Science. The following screen allows you to select the desired problem areas, taking you to the final screen to show you your lesson plan choices. Select the lessons you wish to save to your course outline, and create your custom course outline.
You can also create a course outline by vocabulary term, academic standard, or library outline. By using the Library Outline feature, you can use more than one library to create a course. This allows you to add in FFA and Communication lessons to any standard agriculture class.
In MYcaert.com you are not limited to what lessons you can put into an outline. A recommended number is 60-65 lessons for a school year.
Check out our brief video tutorial, showing you how to create a course outline!
