Recommended Tools


Before you license and share your work, we strongly encourage a review process by both peers and students. 

  • Ensure the item is accessible. The Accessibility Toolkit from BC Campus is an excellent guide.
  • Have the item reviewed by colleagues and other instructors teaching similar content in their classes.  Are there gaps in the material?  Are the examples relevant?  Would they consider using the material in their own classes?  
  • Have the item reviewed by students. Students will have a unique perspective on the material and their feedback can be very valuable. Do they find the language unclear? Do the visuals convey the message you intend? Are there parts of the work they find not useful?
