Simple Syllabus

Attending the POD Network Annual Conference? Find out why Simple Syllabus is a must see at this year’s annual meeting. Learn how your institution can leverage syllabus technology to:

  • Enhance the student experience with interactive class syllabi and a powerful learning tool directly integrated within the LMS
  • Analyze curriculum and real-time class data to promote effective teaching practices and student success

Instructional support software designed for the modern classroom

Finding new ways to innovate pedagogy and better engage students is a critical part of any institution’s commitment to continuous improvement. The syllabus presents a unique opportunity for campus stakeholders to have a constructive discussion on teaching and new ways for staff to provide ongoing impactful support. With nearly 90% of students accessing their syllabus throughout the semester, this is also a great way for instructors to improve communication through effective course design.

How it works

Simple Syllabus is a centralized, template-driven platform that creates a collaborative environment between instructors, instructional designers, and other institutional staff. Easy to use and instantaneous, the administrative template builder will enable you to quickly define required or suggested content for the syllabus that instructors can leverage to save time. Provide direct support throughout the entire syllabus design process by actually creating content for instructors or simply provide basic guidance through inline help resources such as text-based instructions, videos, and more. Simple Syllabus is incredibly flexible and can be specifically designed to meet the needs of your institution’s organizational culture. Advanced reporting and diagnostic tools can help you identify potential departments to engage or individual instructors that may need help.
