The Subject Outline Tool (SOT) was created to achieve the following objectives:
|Compliance||Outlines must comply with Academic Senate Regulations including the Subject Outline Policy|
|Consistency||Provides a uniform development and QA approach for academics and output for students|
|Accessibility||CSU has an obligation to ensure that all students can access Outlines for their enrolled subjects|
|Integration||Uses authoritative subject data then delivers Subject Outlines seamlessly into Interact2 subject sites|
|Usability||Improved user interface for both academics and students|
|Visibility||Prominent, modern display to students|
The tool enables drafting, quality assuring and publication of Subject Outlines for all offerings which are active on the Subject Availability List (SAL). For exceptions, see Offering types excluded from the SOT.
