You can get textbook information for a particular class using one of the following methods:
Textbook data is collected from the campus bookstore at least three time per week. The university requires instructors to submit textbook information to the official bookstore for inclusion in the official textbook list.
Because the publishing industry is ever changing, textbook submission is a complex process. It's more involved than the submission of an book title or ISBN number.
Fortunately, the textbook manager at the campus bookstore is available help. Please call Brian Kaiser 972-883-4667 for all questions related to textbooks and textbook submission.
The basic steps to access a photo roster are:
Note that rosters are only available to instructor(s) of record.
Try searching for a course number, title, prefix, professors last name (or NetID). Example search terms: "CS6366", "CS 6366", "ARTS", "sullivan", "abs991010".
You may combine multiple search terms to narrow your search results.
Try your search again with the include special classes option selected.
Also try different or less restrictive search criteria. If you are still unable to find your class, it may not be listed in the database.
Syllabus templates are maintained by the Provost's Technology Group and approved by the Committee on Educational Policy.
The Provost's Technology Group checks each syllabus for four required components: course description, student learning objectives, calendars/outlines, and grading policy or rubric. If a syllabus does not have all of these components, then it will not be posted.
The general preference is to have the syllabi before the start of classes. Syllabi posted are available for viewing online to assist students in learning what may be expected in a course. However, syllabi and their revisions will be accepted after this time as well.
The preferred file format is PDF, although Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and ASCII Text formats are also acceptable. Submissions not submitted in PDF will be converted and stored in PDF format. Please avoid the submission of large or password protected files. Keep a copy of original file after submission.
Syllabi do not automatically post to the Syllabus Search website. Syllabi are individually reviewed and converted before they are made publicly available. The Provost's Technology Group attempts to review all syllabi within one working day.
Each submission is reviewed to assure it meets SACS and university requirements. If issues prevent the acceptance of a syllabus, the instructor of record will be contacted directly. Accepted syllabi are issued a unique identification code and posted on the CourseBook webpage.
Simply resubmit a new version of the syllabus. If approved, your new submission will replace the existing syllabus on file.
Email the Provost's Technology Group at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the deletion the syllabus. Please provide the full section address in your email.
No. CourseBook does not have access to the eLearning system.
You will be informed via email if a class you are taking has an online evaluation. Instructions on perfoming the evaluation are included with the email.
Please check junk mail and spam folders if you expected an evaluation email and didn't recieve it. Note that emails are sometimes sent to personal email addresses so don't forget to check all inboxes.
