DCCCD LCET Course Templates

The following courses are available for all DCCCD full time and adjunct faculty to use. They are products of collaboration between faculty members at DCCCD colleges, instructional designers, and the production staff at the LeCroy Center. The courses are designed so that the objectives and outcomes, assessments, and instructional content are all closely aligned - please pay careful attention to course alignment should you choose to make revisions.

Although efforts were taken to make the courses "textbook-neutral," in some cases the courses rely on publisher materials. These courses deploy assessments that come directly from the publisher; if you adopt one of these courses and elect to use a different textbook, you will be unable to use these assessment pieces, as they are made available for courses for which students must purchase the associated textbook. These following courses are tied to publisher materials in the aforementioned way: BCIS 1405, BIOL 1322, BIOL 1408, BUSI 1301, EDUC 1300, GOVT 2305, GOVT 2306, HIST 1301, HIST 1302, and PHYS 1403.

It is recommended that you clear any content from the shells before you request the course copy. To acquire and use one of these courses, please highlight and copy the ID of the course you wish to use:

For example, BIOL 1322 course template ID: LCET-TEMPLATE-BIOL-1322.

Next, select the link for the Course Copy Request Form. You will need to paste the desired template ID into the “copy from” section, as shown below:

When copying from a Template in Blackboard, Indicate the template ID as it appears in eCampus. Using the example above, template ID: LCET-TEMPLATE-BIOL-1322.
