Video of Syllabus Procedure



You can download the Syllabus Template by going to Faculty & Staff on the gfcmsu website.  Please contact your the Administrative Assistant or Division Director of your department regarding what content must be included in your syllabus.


If you would like eLearning to review your syllabus for accessibility, simply email the attachment to elearning@gfcmsu.edu.


Note: If you want to delete a text box because it will not allow you to format correctly (italics for book titles, creating a simple table, or creating a bulleted list, for example), you may do so as long as the document passes the accessibility check.  If you need any help with errors after running the accessibility checker, we can assist you.  


Accessibility Checker Tips: You may notice that you receive suggestions about table order.  The directions in the accessibility checker state to ensure the reading of the table is accurate by using the "tab" button on your keyboard to move from box to box.  Additionally, you can ignore the suggestion regarding the length of the title, as it is our university's name.
