Search a Million+ Syllabuses
Now available: a database that lets you explore what works are assigned in college syllabuses. It was in my Pocket queue already, but thanks to Penny for the tag on Twitter. “Until now. Over the past two years, we and our partners at the Open Syllabus Project (based at the American Assembly at Columbia) have collected more than a million syllabuses from university websites. … This past week, we made available online a beta version of our Syllabus Explorer, which allows this database to be searched.” What work was assigned most often? “The Elements of Style,” naturally!
