Instructors and staff at San Juan College never imagined how time-consuming constant updates to curriculum could be; manually updating two different but similar documents, a syllabus and course guide. To make matters more difficult, neither of these critical documents had previously been made accessible—a problem many institutions face as they look to enhance student capabilities. Tracking changes and ensuring accurate content was manual and cumbersome.
Determined to find an easier way, San Juan College implemented Simple Syllabus to streamline the way that syllabus content was updated. Utilizing templates that matched their needs, San Juan was able to produce content dynamically and consolidate the number of documents that needed to be maintained across campus, saving hundreds of staff hours—and immeasurable amounts of frustration—every semester.
