Simple Syllabus is UA’s online syllabus platform.

The University of Alabama is adopting a new syllabus tool, Simple Syllabus, launched April 17, 2023 and will be used for Summer 2023 and future terms.

Simple Syllabus populates section information and materials, as well as instructor information, from other UA systems, such as CourseLeaf and Banner. Pertinent institutional policies and guidelines will be included on the syllabus by default. Instructors can edit a section syllabus from within a Blackboard course or directly in Simple Syllabus and are able to see how extensively students have explored the syllabus.
