Simple Syllabus helps instructors save time and eliminate redundant tasks associated with syllabus creation in Canvas. It’s centralized and template-driven, automatically ensuring compliance with accreditation and regulatory standards while still giving faculty the autonomy to personalize curriculum content for their classroom. Designed specifically for updating Canvas syllabi, it is incredibly intuitive and requires no training to use. Its web-based architecture means it’s accessible from anywhere, anytime and requires no software installation or updates. The powerful publisher of Simple Syllabus helps instructors create more interactive syllabi by including rich media, such as video or images, directly within their Canvas class syllabus. All changes made to your syllabus are automatically saved without any need to push a button. Content previously created by instructors automatically carries forward each term in the syllabus publisher, eliminating the need for laborious copy and paste.
Retrieval of your institution’s syllabi for compliance purposes is even easier. Simple Syllabus is built on a centralized syllabus repository that archives all campus syllabi created within Canvas and their underlying data to support extensive reporting capabilities for accreditation and effective syllabus management.
We want everyone who visits the Simple Syllabus system to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding. To that end we have established an accessibility statement to affirm our commitment to designing technology that is usable by all students regardless of disabilities. We understand that these technological needs are constantly evolving and will continue to update our approach as new opportunities become available.
To help us make the Simple Syllabus system a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone. The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Simple Syllabus website and test all new functionality for conformance during the Quality Assurance process.
