Syllabus Requirements

Distribution requirement:

To distribute the syllabus on the LMS, go to WyoCourses, and navigate to your course shell.  Click on the Syllabus page.  You can load up an document format here.  In the “Files” tab on the right hand side of the page, click on “+ Upload a File.”  Pick your syllabus document from the appropriate folder on your computer.   You can link to the file using a statement such as “Download and review the full syllabus document (insert a link to document here) to see the course expectations, assignments, schedule, and other details.”

To fully populate the syllabus page, go to the Assignments link on the right hand side.  Insert and add your assignments, exams, and other graded materials and due dates here.  If you do not wish to have a due date showing (for example, pop quizzes), due dates are not required, but adding them to the Assignments page will add them automatically to the Syllabus page.

To allow all confirmed and currently enrolled UW students to see the syllabus, go to the Settings link on the left hand side of the page.  In the Course Details tab, scroll down to “Visibility” and make sure the option chosen is “Institution.” Below that, click “Include this course in the public course index.” The syllabus information will now be accessible to students before they enroll in your course.
