N. D. B. Connolly and Keisha Blain explain:

“With Trump 1.0, the Chronicle’s editors and its contributors sought to explore the deep historical, political, and even psychological roots of Donald Trump’s political success during the 2016 Presidential campaign. It borrowed its form– a public syllabus–from #Fergusonsyllabus, #Charlestonsyllabus, and #Blkwomensyllabus (to name just a few), which each pulled from a broad audience on social media and marshaled the thought-work of scholars to help mobilize political and intellectual responses to contemporary challenges, such as police brutality, racial terrorism, or sexism and racism directed at black women. Unlike these earlier crowd-sourced syllabi, the Chronicle’s Trump Syllabus was not intended to mobilize a political or intellectual response. And, rather than drawing from a broad web-based audience, it drew its contributors from a narrow crowd of pre-selected experts.

The results were predictably unacceptable….”

So they fixed it.
