Course Outline

The course outline is issued to students in advance of their course commencement. It provides all information about a course including objectives, assessment requirements, text books, teaching staff and a course calendar. The course outline includes relevant legislative requirements and University policies that must be communicated to students in relation to undertaking their course.

Course Coordinators create a course outline for each course offering using a semi-automated web-based application. A large proportion of the document is pre-filled with approved data from the Program and Course Management System (PCMS) other section can be edited by the Course Coordinator and tailored for a specific course offering. Features of the system include:

  • an intuitive interface for easy navigation
  • a wizard driven creation process
  • pre-populated fields with approved information from the PCMS
  • quick-copy of previous course outlines for future offerings
  • automatic publication to the learnonline course site
  • direct submission to Document Services for printing.
