Hints for Success!
- Do not copy/paste content from Word, Excel, Googles Docs, or any other application.
It can make the syllabus fail accessibility requirements. This is especially true for TABLES which cause many accessibility failures.
- Use only Firefox or Chrome browsers; Microsoft products are not supported.
- Use the application buttons, not the browser back and reload buttons (except in Preview mode).
- Use shift-return to go to the next line if you do not want a new paragraph.
- Use the logout button in the application.
- Review step 1 for 2-Factor Authentication to understand the login process.
- Review step 2 for Textbook Selection before beginning.
- Look at approved Syllabi to get an idea of required content.
- Check the changing GSS FAQ for answers.
