Developing our courses
Each of our programmes are built in close collaboration with a group of universities known as the ‘development group’. Members of this group pay a one-off fee and then collaborate with us to peer-review the courses.
Developed in collaboration
Our highly collaborative approach involves a development group of universities who provide feedback throughout the development process. We partner world-class subject experts with our experienced in-house editorial staff and web developers to build courses that are insightful, engaging and effective. Quality is assured through a meticulous review process, with substantial input from reviewers, advisors and development group members to help shape and fine-tune the courses. A typical course storyboard goes through at least six iterations with input from over 20 individuals before it is approved.
Our Development Process
What a development group does
Development group members collaborate with the programme’s lead advisor, authors, reviewers and Epigeum to shape the programme by:
- Agreeing the detailed course curriculum
- Participating in a programme launch workshop
- Peer-reviewing the materials as they are worked into courses
- Arranging for students and staff in their institutions to appear in the course videos.
Input from development group members ensures that our programmes closely match what universities really need.
