Concourse Syllabus System
An Overview of Concourse
Concourse is an online syllabus system that provides a common organization of course information. Concourse provides institutions with a standard way to display course syllabus information, review syllabus progress, and archive syllabi. Concourse is integrated as a webpage to allow syllabi searches, and with Canvas for easy access, as well as being available through the Concourse website via the MyBartonPortal.
Some features of the system include:
- Consistent Structure: It may look like a paper syllabus, but Concourse is an electronic repository. Breaking the syllabus down into its already standard categories makes reporting, reviewing, and searching possible.
- Ability to Archive: Easy access to historical syllabi for importing course information to current syllabi.
- Easy Updates: Making changes to your syllabus is as easy as editing in MS Word.
- Ease of Access: Concourse allows access to course information for review and evaluation.
- Editable Syllabus Items: With permissions, we can designate who has the ability to edit and view syllabi at a refined level. Instructors can modify their contact information, but aren't able to edit course descriptions or student learning outcomes.
- Mobile Access: Formatted for the small screen, Concourse makes it easy to have all your course information at your fingertips, anytime, anyplace, and on any mobile device.
- Account Integration: Faculty can access Concourse through Canvas and the MyBartonPortal.
