Adding the Required Syllabus Acknowledgement Folder to Your Schoology Course

These instructions will show you how to import the Syllabus Acknowledgment Folder into Schoology and setup Completion Rules.

Note:  Southwest Tech requires all courses to have a Syllabus Acknowledgement Folder in their courses.  Students are required to complete the Acknowledgement Quiz in this folder before they are allowed to begin working in the course.  IAL has created the Folder/Quiz and placed it in the Southwest Tech Standard Template group in Schoology.  All you have to do is import the folder from resources.  A reminder that in addition to the new Syllabus Acknowledgement Folder, the Schoology template includes the Student and Faculty Resources Folder, Course Syllabus and Information Folder, Course Work Folder, and Charley’s Corner; and should be structured as follows:
