What are SALSAs?

SALSAs are styled & accessible learning service agreements for contemporary higher-education students, particularly those participating in some form of asynchronous learning delivered online.

SALSAs are:

  • accessible to all students regardless of physical or sensory impairment
  • styled to provide clarity and consistency
  • organized into six parts: information, outcomes, resources, activities, policies and grades
The Center for Innovative Design & Instruction at Utah State University is developing an open-source, web application named Salsa. Building on the design of the PDF Syllabus Builder, this authoring tool generates online documents in PDF and HTML format.
