Stop pushing paper around campus and tracking down faculty to submit curriculum proposals. Support efficient, effective collaboration among faculty and administrators through a centralized system offering transparent processes and robust coordination tools.

Intuitive workflows align with your governance structures, ensure that reviewers know when to engage, and provide clear visibility into decisions and progress-to-date in the curriculum review process. Access a history of all curriculum approvals and changes, providing clear visibility into your processes for accreditors.

Each syllabus is a small but significant representation of the academic experience at your institution. Creating quality syllabi for every course is simple with Syllabus Management. Managing all curriculum, catalog, and syllabus processes in a single system saves time for faculty while simplifying the work of documenting alignment for regional and programmatic accreditation.

There are many times when you may need to access previous versions of syllabi—to support students and alumni in demonstrating achievement of learning outcomes, for accreditation reporting, and more. Don’t rely on file cabinets or thumb drives—archive syllabi in a central location for safe keeping.

Support better data alignment through SIS integration. Easily connect SmartCatalog to Ellucian’s Ethos API for Banner or Colleague student information systems to your catalog and curriculum system so you can automatically load course data and publish curriculum updates back to a central database. Pull course titles, subjects, descriptions, credits and credit hours, and semester and department details directly from your SIS.

This integration also updates your SIS as new courses are created, others are revised, and some are removed from your list of offerings through SmartCatalog’s curriculum management tools. Once a proposal for a new course or a course change is approved in SmartCatalog curriculum management, you can publish the change to your student information system with the click of a button, keeping both systems in sync.
