Third-party providers are not allowed by the 21f legislation to offer their own online courses through the statewide catalog of online courses. They can however, upload course syllabi for use by educating districts. It is important to note that the course syllabi information entered by a third-party provider following the steps below will never be displayed to the general public through the District and Statewide Catalog search screens; it will only be visible to district personnel who are logged into the catalog website. This process describes how to add third-party syllabi information.
