Semester Prep FAQ

If your courses only need basic updates every semester, this is a low-cost solution for improving the student experience. We review each of the courses in your program to ensure all aspects of the course function as expected. Our in-depth knowledge of your LMS will help your faculty prepare efficiently.

Or if you need courses built from scratch, Six Red Marbles can do that too—contact us to discuss opportunities.

We make sure things work, and we’re here to be sure your new term starts smoothly.

We can ensure a consistent learner experience across courses in a program and verify that all courses are published and accessible on your timeline.

Our Semester Prep services include:

  • Seamless LMS integration
  • Course content review
  • Consistent policy implementation and communication across courses within the LMS
  • Full integration of faculty’s grading policies

Our team has experience with Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, D2L Brightspace, and many other widely used systems. Do you have a different or in-house LMS? Schedule a meeting and we’ll find an expert from the team who knows exactly how to support you.

We work with colleges and universities that run the gamut from community colleges and small liberal arts schools to R1 institutions. We can contract with an entire institution, individual colleges within a university, or individual programs within a college. We’ve completed work at all levels from undergraduate to graduate as well as boot camps and certificate programs.

Six Red Marbles employs a diverse and exceptional team of instructional designers who have expertise in a variety of fields such as business, public health, mathematics, physical sciences, biological sciences, technology, humanities and social sciences, and more.

At least eight weeks before the start of your first Semester Prep–amplified term, faculty receive an email asking them to sign up for meetings to introduce the instructional designers, discuss their courses, augment content and processes, and prepare for the next semester.

As you get started, our team will:

  • Meet with administrators one term prior to establish goals and an effective strategy.
  • Perform information gathering: What are the challenges current faculty and students are facing?
  • Meet with the IT team to learn more about the LMS.
  • Develop a launch schedule and assign instructional designers for your Semester Start based on the semester course schedule.

Our support doesn’t end with the start of the semester. Leverage our experts for additional consultation at your convenience.
