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:
If you have already imported the Schoology Standard Template, all you have to do is import the new Syllabus Acknowledgement Folder from Resources. If you haven’t brought in the template yet, you can do so by following the steps below.
- Open one of your Schoology Classes
- Click the Add Materials Button
- Choose Import from Resources
- In the Import from Resources box, select Group on the left hand side and choose Southwest Standard Template.
- Select the box to the left of the Syllabus Acknowledgement folder.
NOTE: if you have not imported any of the template folders yet, select the checkbox next to each required folder. (Student and Faculty Resources Folder, Course Syllabus and Information Folder, Course Work, and Charley’s Corner in addition to the Syllabus Acknowledgment Folder).
- Click the Import Button
- Click Import again
NOTE: If you only brought in the Syllabus Acknowledgement Form because you already had the other folders in the course, the folder will be located at the bottom (as shown in the screenshot below). You can move it above the Course Work folder by clicking the Move option shown in the image below.
NOTE: Now that the Syllabus Acknowledgement Folder is located above the Course Work Folder, you can set the completion rules
IMPORTANT: If you have added due dates to your course, they will be deleted once you turn the completion rules on. (Take a screenshot of the Bulk Edit screen for ease in reentering due dates)
- Select the Options Button located above the folders.
- Select Student Completion.
- In the Student Completion box, click the Add Requirement link one time (Do NOT click on the Make all folders sequential link).
- Your screen should now look like the image below.
- Click the dropdown arrow next to the first folder and select Syllabus Acknowledgement must Complete.
(This setting will require the students to complete the Syllabus Acknowledgement BEFORE they are able to open the Course Work Folder)
- Click Save Changes
