Develop course overview concept maps to help students understand the organization or expectations of your course

Posting a course overview concept map to the home page of your course helps students better understand how the topics addressed in the course fit together. You can also create a concept map for individual modules to help students visualize how the module concepts fit together and connect to the overall course objectives. Another type of concept map that helps students understand how the coursework is structured to meet learning objectives is an overview map that illustrates the various assignments, assessments, and requirements for the course. Upload the concept map to your course home page so that students see it when they log in to the course.
