Creating a Syllabus in ReggieNet

Last modified 5/18/2022

ReggieNet allows instructors to add a syllabus to a course. Students can then view the syllabus by logging in to ReggieNet. Click the link below for more information on ReggieNet.

To complete these instructions, you must be an instructor with at least one course in ReggieNet.

Syllabus Options

As an instructor, you have a few options for adding a syllabus to your course in ReggieNet.

  • Type it in ReggieNet Manually - Instructors can type a syllabus for a course directly into ReggieNet. This option supports rich text, which means you can use bold, italics, underline, bulleted and numbered lists, and other styling options (similar to MS Word editor).
  • Add a File to ReggieNet - Instructors who have already typed up a syllabus as a Word or PDF document might prefer to make the file available for download through ReggieNet. Depending on several factors, including the file type of the document and the browser used by the student, the syllabus might be viewable in the browser, or the student might be required to download the file, and open it to view it.
  • Redirect to a Website - Instructors who have already published a syllabus online can choose to include it in ReggieNet. This option displays the desired web page in a new browser tab. To use this option, you must provide the web address (URL) for your syllabus.
