You may export your Syllabus as a PDF or MS Word document. You may also select the Preview eye-con to view the Syllabus from a student’s view. 


Reset Button: If you would like to delete all added data in the syllabi, select the Reset button in the top right corner of the Course Syllabus page.


Please note: The Reset button will delete all syllabus data and reset the content to the Course Syllabus defaults. Once deleted, the data cannot be recovered.


The reset button will only delete the information which was entered at the Course Section level. Information that is added on the Course level will remain untouched.
