Clearly indicate core vs. supplementary episodes in lesson syllabus #284
Looking at the syllabus, I find the list of topics very confusing: sessions 1-8 seem to be continuous. Topics 9-15 seem to start from the beginning with some extra stuff (like factors). Are those considered 'extra' materials. If so, maybe this should be clearly indicated in the title. Or I think it is even better to have a lesson called Supplementary, which links to these materials, so that instructors pace the lesson accordingly - I think the core of the material is in the first few lessons, so they should not be mislead that they have a lot of extra lessons to cover. Let me know what you think a good approach to fix that is.
The timings on the side refer to how long it would take to cover the entire set of lessons.
The later lessons cover certain topics in a bit more detail, so if we do not get to them it's not too bad, but in an ideal situation it all gets covered.
We used to have a section of supplemental materials (and marked as such) but this way as an instructor, they see all the materials that are being used.
I'm not entirely sure how we can better split up the content without making it difficult to find.
Thoughts and comments are welcome
Hello, I had a similar impression as @valentina-s when I looked at the table of contents for the first time. It was a bit confusing for me to understand why some topics repeat and are shuffled like this. Maybe there is no need to rename or change the order of the topics, but such a comment as you @chendaniely gave above about the later lessons being more detailed would clarify it.
