A good summary will usually include all of the following:
What is the course about?
What do I need in order to take this course?
What does it cover?
How is it taught?
Who is teaching this course?
Course summaries are a summary of the course that is given to potential students. They are usually in the form of a paragraph or two and they should provide enough information for someone to decide whether or not they want to enroll in the course.
The Course Summary is designed to help learners make faster decisions about which courses to take, or which courses might be of interest.
