Syllabus Build Tool (SBT)
The Syllabus Build Tool (SBT) manages all teaching syllabi for courses taught online or at one of CMU's off-campus satellite centers. The SBT is designed to ensure alignment with CMU’s Master Course Syllabi, provide a structure for communicating all necessary course components, collect and retain all syllabi in one centralized system, and consistently communicate both academic expectations and support services to students.
There are many tutorials available to guide you in using the Syllabus Build Tool. All tutorials are accessed through the CMU Knowledge Base.
