What is Stanford Syllabus?
Stanford Syllabus was released to the Stanford community in Fall 2006. Conceived by the Committee on Undergraduate Standards and Policy (C-USP), funded by the Provost's Office, and developed by Academic Computing, the goal of the standalone Stanford Syllabus application is to provide a centralized online repository of syllabi for Stanford University courses.
On March 7, 2008, a new version of Stanford Syllabus, which is integrated with CourseWork, was released. This latest version allows uploaded syllabi to be accessible from both the external Stanford Syllabus application and CourseWork system. Instructors will only need to post their syllabus once and the syllabus will show up in both systems.
