Fork This Syllabus

This website and all course content is stored as a version-controlled repository on GitHub.

The motivation behind building a syllabus and materials on GitHub is free dissemination of course materials for the benefit of other instructors and students. With this in mind, this repository is released under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License 3.0. Materials from this repository can be forked, copied, reused, and modified in any way at any time for any purpose, provided attribution back to the original author is included and any derivative works are released under a similar license (i.e., don’t pass any of this off as your own work and don’t place additional copyright restrictions on the use of any derivative works).

The Chronicle of Higher Education’s ProfHacker blog has discussed the potential for GitHub for this kind of course. Their posts might be helpful to anyone who is interested in this kind of course sharing but who is unfamiliar with git and GitHub.

Creating an account on GitHub is easy. And so is forking this repository to develop it into your own course. You can also download all of the content in the repository as a .zip in one click.
