Enhanced Syllabus Tool

A session at Open Apereo 2013 Conference (Jasig & Sakai)

  • Hui Jin

Tuesday 4th June, 2013

4:00pm to 4:45pm (PST)

Columbia University is working on enhancements to the syllabus tools to make it more robust and user friendly. The enhancements are being done by Longsight and are slated for completion in April 2013. Columbia plans to pilot the enhanced tool in summer before a full role out in Fall 13 term.

The enhanced Syllabus tool will have the capability of attaching date and time stamp to items to allow it to be linked to the calender. In addition, instructors will be able to create multiple items with or without date all at once. The tool will also have bulk update feature to allow updates to all titles, link to calendar, conversion of draft to post and delete. A table of content view is also being developed for easier read for both instructors and students.
