How to Add your Syllabus to Webster


We will be working with Google Docs throughout this tutorial. If you haven’t already, please get a Google Doc version of your syllabus. You can copy and paste from a Word Doc or PDF. You will be pasting a URL of the Doc into Webster; not uploading a file.

Doing it this way allows you to make edits without needing to reupload a file. Also, you can share and delegate rights to other instructors who may need the file.


Below the video are written out steps to follow if you don’t want to watch the video.
