Higher ed professionals are used to buying software that never does exactly what it says it will do. Well, this is not that. Modern Campus Acalog, Curriculog and Section does exactly what they say it will do and more.

The Challenge

Curriculum changes are common in higher ed, but the Montcalm faculty and limited staff tasked with curriculum review found it almost impossible to keep up with ever-growing paperwork and revisions.  

Even worse, the academic catalog was never up to date. Before publishing, there were often curriculum changes that didn’t make it into the latest PDF catalog. The student experience also suffered because learners had no way to search course listings or class dates and times. 

We don’t have the time or staff for things to be going back and forth. We need to have the bugs worked out of the curriculum before it gets to the committee so it can be approved and moved along.

The Solution

Montcalm moved its curriculum management process online with Modern Campus Curriculog.  

Now, curriculum reviewers can collaborate and revise entries in real time. Everyone always has the latest content, and multiple reviewers can make changes immediately. And with Curriculog’s step-by-step process, entries are flagged if information is missing—simplifying the entire approval process. 

Modern Campus Section simplified class scheduling and improved the student experience.

Section makes the scheduling process unbelievably fast. Department chairs can sit down with other faculty, make a few tweaks, get it approved and the schedule is done. It takes only a few days, and we can build an entire year’s schedule. It has made it so much easier for students to find the classes they need.
