Choosing Modern Campus Curriculum was the best choice for Central New Mexico Community College.

The Challenge

Siloed systems, unable to integrate   

CNM was using a digital curriculum management solution but it was a basic one. It was unable to integrate with their student information system and therefore, impossible to manage across so many campuses and faculty needs.  

It was very painful. We were advised that our old curriculum management solution would integrate with Banner, but that never happened. Members of the college were asking when these upgrades and features were going to happen, and they never would.

When Hall realized that their current vendor’s customer support team didn’t understand credit hours, she knew they needed a new curriculum management solution. However, she was concerned about the curriculum data stored on their old system and was worried that all that information would be lost during the switch.  

The Solution & Result

Streamlined curriculum approval process with Modern Campus Curriculum

With Modern Campus Curriculum, CNM created a streamlined curriculum approval process that integrated with Banner as well as their existing catalog. The Registrar’s Office could now customize forms for different departments—resulting in much quicker course and curriculum approvals.  

CNM’s staff can now create new features and upgrades that suit their needs, including:

  • workflows for course approvals outside curriculum cycle
  • forms for apprenticeship programs
  • cross-listings feature giving separate schools approval capabilities
  • impact reports to inform students and faculty of curriculum changes

Now that our course changes are fully transparent, Modern Campus Curriculum allows us to create an audit trail of who made the changes and why. This helps us send it back to originator when there are errors or missing information.

Seamless data migration

Hall’s concern that their historical data might be lost during the switch was put to rest by the Modern Campus support team and all the data was moved to the new system seamlessly. 

We made what we thought was an unusual request. We asked the Modern Campus Curriculum team to move all that data from the old system to Curriculum. The response from their customer support team was ‘sure, no problem.’ They were able to move all that data over without us having to re-enter it. It was such a relief and a huge time saver.
