This planning tool is for instructors who wish to estimate the expected student time commitment in a course based on the assigned learning activities. The tool is designed to be used for courses that represent the blended learning spectrum from face-to-face to fully online. Based on the input provided, the tool calculates the total time commitment expected, and allocates activities into scheduled (set by the institution, typically live meetings) and independent (at the discretion of the student within the parameters set by course deadlines) activities.
Note that some components have a name associated with them. This name is optional, but may be helpful to facilitate tracking in the situation where you add particular components one at a time. For example, you may choose to add two Exams from Midterm Exams that are of different lengths.
