Global IT Factory’s Curriculum Management System (CMS) is a cloud-based Single Source of Truth for all curriculum information. The permissions and security model ensures users are only able to access information for the faculties, colleges and schools they are allowed to access. All changes to information are tracked enabling questions such as “Who changed What, When and Why?” to be readily answered. Integration with Student Management Systems, Handbook portals, Learning Management Systems, and other core systems can be readily achieved, ensuring consistent, reliable and high-integrity distribution of approved curriculum information.
The Curriculum Management System (CMS) has a fully-integrated Program Rules engine enabling universities to capture, manage and publish the curriculum structures of all their current and planned offerings. The solution models virtually any curriculum structure, from the most complex double degrees, postgraduate and undergraduate awards, to diplomas and certificates. Using course lists and logic rules, the CMS allows faculties and colleges to build structures that are reviewed, approved and amended as needed. The solution enables compartmentalisation of rules through the use of fully reusable substructures, as used for example in Majors, Minors and Specialisations. The CMS is readily able to incorporate micro-credentials in pathways leading to awards.
Global IT Factory’s Curriculum Management System (CMS) incorporates a highly flexible workflow engine that is used to track, manage and report on the progress of curriculum through the review and approval processes. It readily lets you see where you are today,how you got there and where to next. The solution supports whichever committees and approval steps your organisation may use. It enables workflows to be defined on a university-wide basis, or to have faculty, college, or school specific variations. Automatic user notification comes as standard, ensuring actions are taken when required, and key milestones are communicated to the most appropriate groups and individuals.
Global IT Factory’s Curriculum Management System (CMS) manages all aspects of Programs, Courses and Classes. This includes all facets of student facing handbook and internal administrative information. It extends across learning outcomes, assessment tasks, marketing descriptions, business cases, fees, lecture/tutor contact details, campuses, locations, and more.
To ensure the Curriculum Information Model is right for your institution, the CMS is completely template driven. The forms, fields & permissions are entirely configurable by your curriculum administrators, in most cases with no help from IT. The platform uses your language, your business processes, your roles & responsibilities.
The CMS enables your curriculum information to be refined and revised as business improvements are identified, automatically ensuring all new curriculum take advantage of these improvements, while leaving historical curriculum as-is.
