What is the Syllabus tool?

The Syllabus tool allows instructors to create and display information about their course.

The Syllabus tool is designed as a multi-part, unit-based tool.  That is, the course Syllabus can be created and posted in "parts".

Alternatively, the Syllabus can be created and posted as a single document or web page.

The Syllabus tool offers these features:

  • Rich Text Editor: Instructors can create, format, and edit their syllabus using a Rich Text Editor.
  • Attachments: Instructors can attach a document, that can serve as the course Syllabus.
  • Redirect Option: Instructors can link to Syllabus document hosted elsewhere, that can serve as the course Syllabus.
  • Multi-part Option: Instructors can create and post a course Syllabus in multiple "parts" at different points in the semester (Appended Syllabus).
  • Public View: Instructors may make their syllabus or select "parts" of the Syllabus available to the public.
