The syllabus is the one-stop shop for locating essential information about the course. It is necessary that the syllabus be clearly organized, complete, and consistent with the course so that students may quickly locate information such as how communication takes place and how their grades are determined. To save you some time, we can provide you with a syllabus template which can function as a checklist for essential items.
