    'Elaborate' means to add more detail to existing information, so you wouldn't really use it in the context of creating something from the beginning.

    If you were going to add more details to an existing syllabus, you could say for instance:
    I will elaborate upon the current syllabus

    Or if someone wanted to tell you that there wasn't enough detail in the current syllabus, they could say for instance:
    The syllabus needs further elaboration
