The course syllabus informs students about the scope, procedures, bibliography, and examination or paper requirements of a course. The syllabus should also convey the instructor’s expectations about academic integrity. Suggestions for appropriate plagiarism warnings are available through the Writing Center Web page Understanding and Avoiding Plagiarism. During the 2016-2017 academic year, Yale offers students the option of viewing online syllabi through the Online Course Information system with links to either Canvas @ Yale or Classes*v2.
Canvas @ Yale and Classes*v2 automatically create sites for all courses listed in the registrar’s system. Instructors are encouraged to log on to Canvas @ Yale or Classes*v2 to post syllabi and other course materials at least one week before the start of each term. For assistance consult Canvas @ Yale online help, or Classes*v2 online help, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
