If you have been wanting to post materials online, but want to start gradually, creating an online syllabus is an excellent way to ease into posting materials online which will be greatly appreciated by your students. By posting your syllabus on a Web site, students can access it 24 hours a day, and it can be updated if needed. Students who lose a paper copy can still refer to an online syllabus and reprint it.
Some Penn State options for posting an online syllabus include:
Penn State ANGEL Course Management System - http://cms.psu.edu
Each ANGEL Course includes a "Syllabus" tab in which you can fill out a syllabus template. Alternatively, you can upload your own syllabus file into either the "Syllabus" or the "Lessons" tab.
Other Penn State Web Spaces
You can post an HTML or PDF syllabus into COLA Web space or your personal Web space. Once you have a file created, you can post it through the PASS System (login required) or one of the SFTP clients available from Penn State.
To learn how to create Web pages or PDF files, you can attend one the free ITS seminars.
