Changes to the Syllabus in Canvas

As you prepare for the next term, you may notice some changes to the Syllabus section of Canvas. Starting with the summer 2016 term, the Learning Design and Technology team will ensure the default Maryville syllabus policies are automatically populated in every course in Canvas.

There is no change in your ability to upload your syllabus to this area. The only difference is that there is a pre-populated area located between the editable section and the section automatically generated by Canvas. The standard Maryville policies CANNOT be edited or changed from within an individual course. The policies can only be edited at a global level.

The below screenshot details the location of the syllabus policies.


Please contact your dean for requirements around what to include in the editable section of Syllabus. If you have any questions about the policies or Canvas, please contact us.
