I decided to choose Blackboard’s CourseSites LMS. The first step to creating the course was the sign-up. You had to select an institution with which you are affiliated before you could even begin.
I then choose the Create a New Course package and entered my course name, course id and course description. I choose to create a course on the topic on How to Homeschool. Next, you were given a choice to instructor enroll or permit self-enrollment. I did instructor however, I may be emailed. Finally I was given my website link https://andreahall.coursesites.com .
I entered the course and then I was asked to choose a course structure (I chose eCollegial) and then it asks me to choose a theme (I chose composition).
Finally it was time to build my course so I went to content and started adding material.
It was important, almost mandatory to follow those steps in the beginning. However, when it came to adding things like content, etc. you had more flexibility. The system was quite easy to use and I enjoyed it.
