The Instructional Design Team at SPC has developed a process where they will partner with an academic department and its faculty to create standardized online course content for a particular course. While the process is quite involved, the result is that we now have over 250 standard course templates at SPC. 

What does it mean for your course to use Standard Content

In most cases, your academic department will let you know that the course you are teaching uses Standard Content and will populate your course shell with that content. You as the instructor teaching the course are expected to update the syllabus, add dates, and modify assignments or activities to your liking. If you have been provided Standard Content in your course by your department, and wish not to use it, your Dean must complete a Course Reset Form to have the instructional technology support team develop and remove the content so that you can populate your course with your own content. 


What if your section does not have standard content, but you would like to use it?

You can reach out to and request that we populate standard content in your course. Keep in mind standard content is designed for an online format, but can be populated in any shell and modified to fit any modality. 


What if the course I am teaching does not have standard content available? 

If you are teaching a course that does not have standard content developed, you can talk to your academic department and see if there is a department-maintained master course thats content you can use. At times, department faculty will also share content they have developed. We need written permission to populate your course section with another professor's content if it is not standardized.
