Program Rules / Curriculum Structure

The Curriculum Management System (CMS) boasts a comprehensive Program Rules engine, enabling universities to adeptly manage and publish diverse curriculum structures for all their programs, from complex double degrees to essential diplomas. This versatile solution supports any curriculum design, facilitating the creation, approval, and modification of course structures with ease.

Through detailed course lists and logic rules, the CMS empowers faculties to develop curriculum frameworks that are meticulously reviewed and refined as needed. Its unique capability for rule compartmentalisation, using reusable substructures, allows for efficient organisation of Majors, Minors, and Specialisations, enhancing educational adaptability.

Moreover, the CMS efficiently incorporates micro-credentials, offering flexible pathways that complement traditional degrees and meet modern educational trends. This ensures that Program Rules and Curriculum Structure are optimally aligned with current academic standards and industry expectations.

Workflow driven Business Processes

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, adapting seamlessly to your specific governance structures. It enables workflows to be defined on a university-wide basis, or to have faculty, college, or school-specific variations, offering customised process management tailored to the unique needs of each academic unit.

Automatic user notification comes as standard, ensuring actions are taken when required, and key milestones are communicated to the most appropriate groups and individuals, facilitating a cohesive and efficient progression of curriculum development and approval.

Template-driven Curriculum Design

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.
