Course Outlines

Course Outlines are intended to allow TES Administrators to attach learning outcomes, curriculum outlines, etc.; not syllabi.1 Institutions reviewing the course for transfer would then be able to easily identify the course objectives when assessing its’ transferability. Staff with the TES Administrator User Right have rights to attach these outlines to courses at your institution. Course Outlines must be in .pdf format and be smaller than 4MB in order to attach one to a course. Much like the User-Added Departments and Courses and Course Tags, Course Outlines are applied at the data set level, and can be migrated to other data sets.
