The Open Syllabus Analytics subscription combines syllabus archiving with tools for exploring the curriculum across thousands of colleges and universities. It’s the ‘pro’ version of the Syllabus Explorer, with access to more data, higher resolution views of fields and classes, and more ways to discover and analyze the trends shaping higher education.


Open Syllabus Analytics is split into Free, Trial, and Subscription versions. The Free version is free to use but caps data at 2019, doesn’t show syllabi, and blocks advanced features. The Trial version requires a sign up and provides free access to the Subscription version for 30 days. There is also an institutional trial available upon request. The Subscription version is for schools, publishers, and other educational providers. It provides access to current data, syllabus views, learning outcome views, and more ways to discover and analyze the trends shaping higher education. Major use cases of Open Syllabus Analytics include:

  • Exploring book and article adoption across fields and within schools.
  • Helping faculty take credit for work with teaching applications.
  • Contextualizing trends by seeing abbreviated, anonymized representations of millions of syllabi.
  • Exploring patterns of adoption of Open Access and OER materials at school and state levels.
  • Identifying and comparing trends in teaching and program design.
  • Identifying publishing gaps and opportunities.
  • Mapping learning outcomes within and across programs.

The Open Syllabus dataset includes:

  • 21 million syllabi — including 9.1M from the US, 2.1M from the UK, and 1.8M from Australia.
  • 7400 schools — including 680 with more than 5000 syllabi.
  • 3.8 million titles
  • 65 million assignments
  • 26 million learning outcomes
  • Bi-annual updates
  • Catalog extending back to the 1990s

Analytics does not require that subscribing schools contribute syllabi to the archive, but it becomes a more powerful tool for schools that do. Participation in the archive is free. Terms of participation can be discussed separately at any time with Open Syllabus or Lyrasis staff.
