I’ve been tinkering with this idea for a bit, but I finally figured out the tools to accomplish exactly what I wanted! For this semester, I have created a digital syllabus for my online graduate course. My hope is that a website-structure will allow for easier navigation of finding important information. Although students are familiar with the traditional syllabus format, these documents can be very long, and even if headers are used for accessibility and navigation needs, it can still require lots of scrolling or searching to find specific information.
I am going to survey my students to find out their opinion of the digital syllabus.
