If a faculty member does not see the section or any sections they are teaching
New feeds will be run at least once per day in the morning and maybe again in the late afternoon.
If the section faculty is set to TBA in Banner, then there will not be any section association in Concourse so the section will not show up they are teaching.
Do the syllabi for this fall need a specific naming structure?
No, the file name of the file they upload does not need a specific name.
On the old system we did ask for a specific name convention which helped division chair track and also help with the search index.
Are the curriculum vitae editable by division chairs?
No, it is part of the profile of the person and only they can access it.
Will course level information including description and student learning outcomes be pre-populated? Will they be editable by faculty?
This will be a fall project developing the course level templates. Yes, the categories can be locked from editing.
Will division chairs be able to edit their instructor’s syllabi?
They can click on the course and go to Files and open the original document. But, they cannot upload a new or revised version.
Will the syllabi be blocked from public view prior to approval by the department/division reviewer? Or, is the syllabus available as soon as the instructor uploads it?
For fall 2012 all syllabi will be viewable by the public immediately after upload. In future semesters, we will probably introduce a delay until a few weeks before the semester starts.
Will reviewers be notified of new syllabus that an instructor has marked for review? Or, does the reviewer login and have their list of course and just sort the list based on review status?
There is no notification system for submitting a syllabus for review.
Can the instructors edit after the division chairs have reviewed and approved?
Yes, the instructors can audit after review. The file is marked as Changed since review and chairs would have to be re-reviewed.
Will previous semester’s syllabi be moved over to Concourse?
Previous semester’s syllabi will stay in the existing system. Fall 2012 syllabi and going forward will reside and stay in Concourse.
Are we requesting or requiring a certain upload format for the Syllabi? Such as all in PDF format?
No, Concourse will convert the original file into a PDF for public viewing. The original document is preserved for the instructor and division chair/auditor
When I try and upload a new or revised syllabus I receive an error ‘A file with that name already exists.
Check under the Files menu and see if there is a document with the same name. Since the File upload is not where the syllabus should be uploaded, they can delete that file and then go back to the Syllabus menu and upload the updated syllabus document.
