Using Feeds to Populate Syllabus Item Content

Item-based feeds with syllabus content can be created and run to populate syllabus content in Concourse. Clients typically do this on an infrequent (e.g. once a year) basis to migrate from an existing syllabus or related solution, to populate a large number of course-level templates with artifacts like course descriptions, or to mass set item permissions.

The required format for these custom syllabus content feeds will be very similar to that of a course feed. For example if a feed for the Description item is to be processed, this pipe-separated file should contain columns for: A course identifier, the description itself, additional notes, and finally comments.

More information on item feeds, course feeds, feed construction and sample feed files, can be found here. Have fun!

    UPDATE! As of August 2013, syllabus content processing for category (e.g. Descriptions, Outcomes, etc.) items is now supported. Please review our ** feed specifications** for instructions on how to achieve this.

    If you require more specific or complex content loading, just let us know.
