Jacques Raynauld sharing work on Open Syllabus/Syllabus capabilities in Sakai 3:

Different view of Syllabus when it is integrated into course website

Who are the actors/users/roles of a Syllabus


Explore all of the parts that are of interest:
Description of the course - basic information that should be available to different users/contexts
Evaluation Section - 

Impact on the design

Sakai 3 work:  How does Open Syllabus translate?

  • Page Templates?
  • Other concepts?

Structured vs. Unstructured Syllabus

  • interest in less restrictive, free-form syllabus
  • Open Syllabus (OP) structured, address need of instructors for guided 
  • not necessarily templating.
  • The content/information on the page are discrete pieces of data (semantic) that can be used/re-used in different contexts and other workflows.
  • seeks to preserve 
  • Can these co-exist?

Other issues:
Share syllabus?
Social Networking

To what extent should a syllabus drive the composition of learning objectives (or encourage such objectives, or require them?) and how?

Jacques:  Engineering wants to push learning objectives to course syllabi.  Tagging not adequate for that.

Daphne:  For one thing, tagging requires a shared vocabulary understood by users.  Maybe a hybrid, with some pre-defined semantics, would work.
