Promote Your Course

 In an effort to provide students with as much information about a course as possible, the OES team is working hard to make sure that the One Stop Course Guide offers students the information they need to decide on what courses to register for. We make sure that there’s a syllabus, an instructor photo and biography, as well as a course description with every course offering.

To expand this information, OES is creating short videos that speak to some of the educational highlights of a course. Please take a look at our latest Course Guide video and imagine how you might showcase some of the unique educational opportunities in your course.
