How do I post my syllabus?

The Syllabus Page

1. In Course Navigation, click the Syllabus link.


2. Click Edit Syllabus Description [1]. There are three main parts: a calendar and weighted assignment groups [2], a syllabus description [3], and a syllabus table automatically managed by GLOW [4].


3. Edit the Syllabus description.

How do I Add PDF or Word Document to my Syllabus Description?


Within the Content Selector, click Files [1]. There you can upload a new file or select files you have uploaded previously. Click and highlight the text in the Rich Content Editor you want users to click on to download the syllabus [2]. Click the file in the Content Selector [3] and the text will turn blue noting the link is downloadable. Glow will automatically create a preview of your document so that users don’t have to download it before reading it.

Once you have completed your Syllabus Description, click Update Syllabus.


4.  Make the Syllabus Page your Home Page

a. Click Home in Course Navigation.
b. In the Home page sidebar, click the Choose Home Page link.

c. Click the radio button next to Syllabus to make the Syllabus page your course Home Page.



5. Publish your course

When a course is first created, it’s available to you as the instructor but it’s invisible to your students. Making a course available is called “publishing” it.

Click the Publish.
