Instructions for Online Syllabi

Updated 01142016

In accordance with the UW-Whitewater, Faculty Senate Resolution 945-12, instructors of every course are required to submit an updated syllabus to the library every semester. Syllabi need to be uploaded as PDF files using the Online Syllabus Database or submitted directly to Andersen Library in paper form. PDF (Portable Document Format) files are the only format supported by the Online Syllabus Database

 Instructors may choose one of the following options when submitting a syllabus and making it available:

1)     digitally, but limited to users with UW-Whitewater Net-ID (now the default option); 

2)     digitally to the public-at-large (choose “make this syllabus public” option); or

3)     in the library, and limited to users with UW-Whitewater Net-ID (choose “paper copy only” option).

 As such, syllabi will be accessible only to users with a UW-Whitewater Net-ID, unless explicitly marked "public" by the instructor.  However, please be aware that any and all syllabi may be released in response to a public records request.

For all three options above, go to http://courses.uww.edu/Syllabi/Manage to upload digital syllabi or to indicate that you will submit a syllabus to the library.

 Questions regarding syllabus uploading and website issues can be directed to the Help Desk by emailing to helpdesk@uww.edu or calling EXT.: 4357.

 Questions or issues regarding the “paper copy only” option can be directed to the Andersen Library Circulation Desk at circdesk@uww.edu or calling EXT.: 5511. 

How to use the system:  Using the Online Syllabi Instructions, go to courses.uww.edu, login using your UW-Whitewater Net-ID, and click "Log On."
