Adding a Syllabus item

To add a Syllabus item:

  1. In the menubar, click Syllabus.
  2. Click Create/Edit, and then click Add.
  3. Enter a title for your Syllabus item, and then enter your content. You can copy and paste text from another file (e.g., an HTML file or a Word document).

    Note: Pasting text into the rich-text editor should preserve most formatting, but some types of formatting may need to be added manually in the editor after pasting. You can also use the Paste from Word icon to paste from a Microsoft Word document, although this may not preserve every type of formatting. For details, see ARCHIVED: Pasting from Microsoft Word.

  4. Choose whether to have the item viewable only by members of the site or by anyone (Public View).
  5. Under "Attachments", you can attach a file from your local computer or from Resources, or specify the URL for a file on the web. See ARCHIVED: Options for adding attachments.
  6. Choose whether to have members of the site notified automatically via email when the item is posted.
  7. When you are finished, click Post to post the item, Preview to view it, Save Draft to save it as a draft, or Cancel to cancel.

Editing a Syllabus item
