  1. The course has been approved through Curriculum Committee and is currently offered at FSW.
  2. The instructional materials, resources and learning objectives have been approved by the department and dean.
  3. The SME has permission to submit the request to Learning Technologies.

The word document version will allow us to copy/paste your course information to set up your customized course template in the first phase of the project.
