Sakai: Replace Syllabus

If you have already posted your syllabus as a Word doc in Sakai, you may find that you need to replace it with an updated version.

First, you must edit the original Word document syllabus and save the new version on your computer with a distinct name (e.g., “English 101 sp09 syllabus v2.doc”). Then:

  • log into Sakai and click on the tab for your course
  • choose Syllabus from the left-hand menu
  • click the red X next to your current syllabus to delete it
  • you will be asked to confirm the deletion; click “delete”
  • click the link “Add attachments” (underneath where your old syllabus appeared)
  • next to “Upload local file,” click the “Browse” button
  • navigate through your computer until you locate the appropriate file for upload
  • click “Continue”; your syllabus will appear
  • when your students click on the Syllabus tool on the left-hand menu, they will see the item with the link to the attached Word document. When they click on the link, the syllabus document will open in Word (or they may be prompted to Open or Save)
