ACU decided to go to market in order to identify a Curriculum Management solution that will facilitate the management of course approvals, amendments, and the entire review process. As a result of an RFT process, ACU selected Global IT Factory’s Curriculum Management System to establish a ‘single source of truth’ for the approved course information and documentation. In addition, the alignment of processes with important ACU deadlines, including marketing events and promotional deadlines was imperative.
CMAS (Curriculum Management Approval System) will be the single source of truth for all course and unit information and will be integrated with other university systems.
