Concourse Syllabus Structure

Concourse Syllabus Structure

Syllabi are often comprised of a series of similar components, such as the course description and outcomes. In Concourse these components are referred to as Items. The full breakdown of Concourse syllabus items is as follows: 

  • Meeting Times
  • Contact Information
  • Description - no sub-items
  • Objectives - no sub-items
  • Outcomes - no sub-items
  • Materials
  • Deliverables
  • Evaluation
  • Course Policies
  • Institutional Policies
  • Additional Items
  • Schedule

Unless noted, these item categories can have multiple child items associated with them. A good example of this would be having two co-instructors listed within the Contact Information item category.
