esyllabus information for students
Online syllabi are available on the Course Information and Schedule in the Agora portal which now offers more intuitive ways to explore BC's academic offerings. You may search for syllabi by clicking on the course title which will display a link to the online syllabus, if available.
Access to online syllabi is limited to members of the BC community, so you must authenticate by logging on to Agora Portal (portal.bc.edu). Select My Services.
NEW: The eSyllabus program is being replaced by a new tool called Syllabus Search, which is integrated with the Canvas LMS and BC Services. Syllabus Search provides instructors more flexibility with designing and sharing their syllabi, and provides students easier access, advanced searching, and real time updates of syllabi. The Syllabus Search tool will be launched at the end of March, in time for summer and fall advising and registration.
Access to the eSyllabus system is limited to members of the BC community. Students are required to authenticate by logging on to the Agora Portal (portal.bc.edu) before they can view a course syllabus. Adobe 8 or higher is recommended for viewing an online syllabus pdf.
Viewing an Archived Syllabus
From the Course Information and Schedule landing page, select Syllabus Search, either Current or Archive, type in a keyword, and then click Search button. Click on a Syllabus icon to view the syllabus.
Searching eSyllabus by Keyword(s)
Faculty, students, and staff will be able to search uploaded syllabi by entering keywords. From the Course Information and Schedule landing page, choose "Syllabus Search." Enter the keyword and your search preference as either "Current" or "Archive." Click the "Search" button. All syllabi on the results page will have a "Preview" icon displayed. When you select this icon, the syllabus will be displayed in a separate pop-up window. Archived syllabi are searchable for 30 months after their date of upload.
