Specifically, how do I create my Syllabus for my EagleVision or Face-to-Face Class? Simple Syllabus is a template-driven syllabus platform that enables users to quickly personalize and publish class syllabi. This application pulls data such as course policies, learning objectives, and course section content from Campus Solutions or past syllabi.

The Syllabus menu in Canvas points to a tool called Simple Syllabus, a template-driven syllabus platform that enables designers and instructors to quickly personalize and publish class syllabi. The Syllabus pulls established curriculum information such as course policies, learning objectives, and course selection content from Campus Solution or previously populated syllabi for ease of the Faculty and Designers. Your course syllabi should be available 30 days prior to term start in Canvas. Students will have access to search course syllabi on ERNIE approximately 30 days prior to term start.
