1.4.3 Making Learning Materials available; Making your syllabus available for downloading and creating an easily updatable and readily accessible Course schedule

Click on the empty square next to the Schedule & Syllabus and Course Materials links in the menu to see what the icon means: “It’s time to add content…”. 

First, click on the Schedule & Syllabus link.  We’ll start with making your syllabus available for downloading. In the action bar, click on the Build Content tab. Then under “Create,” click on “File.” [BEEP] Under “Select File” click “Browse My Computer” or “Browse Content Collection” to find your syllabus file. If you choose the latter, on the “Browse Content Collection” window click Browse, then “My Content.” Find the syllabus you uploaded to the drive and click the radio button next to it. [BEEP] Scroll down to click on "Submit." Back on the Create File page, set your options and click "Submit."

Made a mistake? Selected last semester’s syllabus, for example, instead of the updated one for the current semester? No worries, use the hidden action button next to the file, and click on "Delete." [BEEP]

The course schedule section of your syllabus is the “what-when-and-where or how” of your course. It is one part of your syllabus that your students will need to consult regularly and you may want to edit and update as the semester goes on. A well updated course schedule also gives both you and your students a good overview of all that has been accomplished at the end of the semester. For these reasons, we strongly recommend that the course schedule be available to you and your students just “one click away,” that you post it “on the wall” of a learning space area, so to speak. We hope you agree. And if so, in the action bar, click on the Build Content tab, then under “Create,” click on “Item.” [BEEP] Name the item “Course Schedule.” You can create or copy and paste your course schedule in the textbox.  You will keep updating it in the textbox as the semester goes on.  Create or copy and paste your schedule in the textbox now.  Click “Submit” to save. If needed, you can find a tour of the textbox in the Standalone section of the Bb Support website. [BEEP]

Next, click Course Materials link, and then on the Build Content button to add items, files from your teaching drive or from elsewhere.  You can also add web resources by clicking “Build Content,” then under Create, selecting “Web Link.”
