manager before beginning
development of the course.
The high-level design
document should contain:
 Strategy
 Scope
 Specifications
 Materials

Content Outlines should be
created for every new course or
program. The Content Outline
contains the following for each

Storyboards may be used in
complex courses or in cases
where we are not provided
