Updating the Syllabus
Most of the Syllabus has already been pre-populated with policies established at the program or university level.
Faculty only need to update the following areas:
Recommended Textbooks (Optional)
Add sections to create interest and student engagement while also communicating what your students can expect from the class and from you. Learn more about the steps by accessing these curated resources.
Saving and Emailing the Syllabus As a PDF
Once you have added the details to the Syllabus, download and email a PDF of the syllabus to all your students, welcoming them to the course, at least two weeks before the start of your course.
*In compliance with FERPA policy, all course related correspondence should be sent using NU issued email addresses for both faculty and students. As a teaching best practice, you can send mass communications to your students directly from your Blackboard course, which is auto populated with all NU email addresses.
