It appears that I am downloading the older files when I download the syllabus bundle. In order to get the updated 2017 files I am having to download each file group separately for each unit activity.

Thank you for catching this Ryan. We rebounded the syllabus and it should be working properly now and able to download the bundle. If you continue to have trouble with this email so we can troubleshoot further. Thank you for taking the time to let us know.
