The syllabus application allows users to create syllabus drafts, which aren’t yet associated with any particular course or course section. Users can either use these drafts to create their own personal templates to serve as a starting point for all of their syllabi, and even clone them for repeated use, or they may use them to create a new syllabus for a particular course. To link a syllabus to a specific course section:
- Add a course information section by selecting the Course Information button in the top toolbar.
Note: Each syllabus can only have a single Course Information section.
- Select which course and course section the syllabus is for by using the Choose from my courses dropdown.
Note: If you created your syllabus directly from the Courses page, then you already have a Course Information section assigned to that syllabus.
- Once a syllabus has a Course Information section with a selected course, then it is associated with that course. As soon as a course and course section is chosen, the fields will update with official information for that course. This information cannot be edited. However, you may personalize this section by adding content to the Intro Text field.
- When done, save the section. You can verify that a syllabus has been successfully added to a course by going to the Courses page and looking up that particular course.
A syllabus is linked to a course when you can see a preview image, Share Status, and the View/Share/Edit controls. The next step in making your syllabus available to students is to change the Share Status. For more information on sharing a syllabus with students, review the Making a syllabus available to students help doc.
