Box Folder Structure for EPD Courses - For Instructors
EPD’s Learning Design and Technologies unit (LDT) maintains a multi-folder structure within UW-Box for instructors and LDT staff to use during course design, development, and delivery. This document describes the Box folder structure for EPD credit courses and contains links to tutorials for using UW Madison Box.
Your main course folder contains two standard folders: Course Materials and Course Planning & Instructor Resources.
Course Materials Folder
This folder contains specialized locations for course materials and recorded videos.
Course Materials Editing folder – This is where instructors should load the current semester’s course files (syllabus, lessons, assignments, additional resources). This folder may be structured with a series of folders for each module or week in the course.
Recorded Video Presentation Working Folder – Use this folder for uploading recorded lectures or presentations (e.g. Camtasia projects) to be processed by LDT. We will ensure each recording is in proper format for including in your course.
Finalized versions of course materials and videos will be placed by LDT into the Finalized Course Materials and Final Course Videos folders and will be linked from those locations into your online course site.
Course Planning & Instructor Resources Folder
This folder contains course planning materials, after-course reflections and evaluations, plus instructional design templates and resources.
The Course Planning folder is used to prepare for the upcoming semester. Planning documents and development schedules should go in this folder.
After the course is finished, the Review and Reflection folder will contain course evaluation and faculty reflection materials.
The Course Development Project Planning Spreadsheet can be used to track key milestones in course development.
The EPD Instructional Design Templates and Resources folder links to a collection of materials you may find useful throughout the course development process.
The instructional templates have been developed using best practices in teaching and learning, and we strongly encourage our instructors to use and modify these materials to suit their particular course needs and design. These templates can act as a great time saver to instructors during design and development, and can help maintain a consistent learning environment for students within the program.
