Customising your teaching syllabus

Your MyDriveTime account comes with a default syllabus, which you can use to help monitor the progress of your students. If you would like to customise this to suit your own way of teaching, here's how to do it.

Note: Each time you add a new student, we take a copy of your current syllabus and apply it to their record. If you then change the syllabus, only the students you add thereafter will have the new syllabus design applied.

View your current syllabus

  1. On the More menu, click/tap on System Settings, then select the Syllabus tab from the left-hand list.

Managing Syllabus Categories

Add, edit, move and delete categories to create your ideal syllabus template.

Add or rename a category

  1. Click/tap Add Category, enter the category name in the Description field, then hit Save to add it. It will appear at the bottom of the syllabus.
  2. To rename a category, click/tap on the category name, change the Description value and Save your change.

Changing the order of categories

Use the white Up and Down arrows within the purple category heading to move a category one place up or down.

Delete a category

  1. Click/tap the category name to open the Category Details window.
  2. Click/tap the Delete This Category button to remove it from your syllabus.

Note: There must always be at least one category present on the Syllabus. If you do not want to categorise your Skills, you could rename the single category to 'Skills' or 'My Syllabus', for example.

Note: A category cannot be deleted if it has Skills within it. Delete all of the skills first, or move them to a different category.

Managing Syllabus Skills

Add, edit, move and delete skills within categories to cover everything you want to teach.
