#3 Review your syllabus with the syllabus template

The syllabus is likely one of the first things you will distribute to your students and it can set the tone for the whole semester. Make sure your syllabus puts you on the right track with the UD Syllabus Template. This easy to use tool comes complete with a step-by-step instructional video to help get you started.
