Abstract

A well-designed syllabus provides students with a roadmap for an engaging and successful learning experience, whereas a poorly designed syllabus impedes communication between faculty and students, increases student anxiety and potential complaints, and reduces overall teaching effectiveness. In an effort to facilitate, streamline and improve overall syllabi quality, the Center for Learning Technologies at Old Dominion University (ODU) designed a web-based learner-centered syllabus generator system. This online tool enables faculty to easily create, adapt and share course syllabi; without the inefficiencies, inconsistencies and time constraints associated with the traditional ways of preparing syllabi.
