Why Simple Syllabus is Different

What I love about Simple Syllabus, frankly, is how easy it is.  I’ve used a number of syllabus tools in my career, and none has been so streamlined and user-friendly as Simple Syllabus.

Usability is Key

If a tool isn’t easy to use, campus stakeholders won’t use it—this is where Simple Syllabus really excels. The Simple Syllabus platform is intuitive and designed from the ground up to save faculty time with the only single click interface for syllabus publishing. It’s also smart, doing the heavy lifting for your users, carrying forward their previous content and pre-populating major sections of the syllabus for them.

It's Personalized To Your Institution

Simple Syllabus has the flexibility to support what makes you, well, you. Through a simple drag and click administrative interface, non-technical users can control everything about your syllabus templates if needed. They can establish design standards across campus to terminologies and workflows so the software works exactly the way you need it to. The software is configured by the Simple Syllabus team during implementation and can easily continue to evolve overtime, without custom development, as your team is fully empowered to make modifications to support changing regulatory and accreditation requirements.

Unbelievably Powerful

Have you ever had to wonder if a campus system could support your institution’s desired business logic? Worry no more, Simple Syllabus brings a suite of features that support even the most complex institutional setups. With conditional logic, dynamically swap out syllabus content based on a myriad of rules, such as delivery method, campus location, for credit or not, or any other data attribute you have on courses within your SIS.

The Friendly Application

Simple Syllabus can talk—with other applications that is. Integration with higher education’s leading LMS providers normally takes less than 30 minutes to setup and is entirely built upon the Learning Interoperability Standard (LTI), ensuring ongoing stability and compatibility. Connections with your Student Information System can be deployed quickly as well, with multiple communication methods supported on most major commercially available platforms.
