How do I create a multi-part syllabus based on number of items needed?
You can create a multi-part syllabus based on the number of items needed, outlined here, or using a date and calendar format in the "How do I create a multi-part syllabus by dates?" tutorial.
- Enter a title.
- Select the radio button for Create syllabus items by number of items needed.
- Enter the number of syllabus items you would like to have.
- Click Add and Publish.
You will then be taken to a screen where you see the number of syllabus items requested and may edit them there.
This allows you to add a file as an attachment to this syllabus item, or to open the Rich Text Editor to create content directly in the Syllabus item.
Browse for the file on your computer, or attach a copy from the Resources in your course.
By default, the headings are the title of the syllabus appended with a number. Hover your mouse over the heading to make the pencil icon appear. Click the pencil icon to enable the editing of the heading.
Adding start and/or end dates allows you to determine a time range for when students may view this syllabus item. Click Click to add start date or Click to add end date and use the drop down menus to select the date and time. Click the checkmark to save your work.
Click the lightbulb icon to hide a Syllabus item. If the icon is yellow, the item is available to students. If gray, hidden from students. In the above example, Item 1 is available to students on Sept. 10th at 11:5pm. Item 2 is hidden from students until the instructor clicks the lightbulb icon again to change it from gray to yellow.
