1. Introduction

Welcome to the franchise modules start-up guide.

Use this guide to help you prepare a new module or update a copied module in line with Leeds Beckett University's agreement with Franchise Partners. The steps in this guide also provide helpful tools and templates to enhance your module design. This will ensure a better user experience for all of our Franchise Partners and their students.


2. Copy your existing module 

If you are copying a module from a previous year, follow the steps in our guide to copying content from one module to another.

Please note that the following content items should not be copied over:

  • Turnitin assignments
  • Links to the University reading list system
  • Links to any digitised readings

This is because franchise students do not have access to this type of content.


3. Set up core module elements 

Modules in MyBeckett have a wide range of core functionality, which you can use to provide a clear learning journey and a consistent, engaging experience for your students. This also presents an opportunity to address key design principles and implement them into your module, such as:

  • A clear structure and headings with topic/date based navigation
  • Accessible fonts
  • Module discussion boards
  • Links to Library resources for Franchise Partners

We have created a number of guides to help you build your module:
