Wow!!  This is an open online course teaching English pronunciation to higher level students, although it appears to be taught f2f, but may be a hybrid/hyflex.  The layout of the course is easy to follow.  All the material used is very relevant and available for purchase.  Handouts from the class being taught are available in .pdf format, are easy to understand and ready to be used.  There are four (4) taped video presentations of the class to see how it was taught.  Great syllabus and detailed calendar, with due dates and schedule.  Learning objectives are clear, and grading scale is simple.  I will definitely be using this course.  It's a bit dated (2004) but still very relevant.
