The Subject Outline Tool (SOT) was created to achieve the following objectives:
|Compliance||Outlines must comply with Academic Senate Regulations including the Course and Subject Information Procedure|
|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.
