I've been tasked with a bit of a hot potato, and I was hoping anyone else out there already set something like this up. Our provost wants to populate all new courses with a syllabus template. That's pretty straight-forward with an API triggered import of a template course. But now she also would like to see the course description (from the course catalog) autopopulate in the syllabus, or appear on the course front page.
Anyone tried something like this? Suggestions, comments, or general statements about dogs are welcome.
