Curriculum version management can change your life (and your students')

One of the biggest benefits of curriculum management software is that it does all the version management for you. The latest approved version of any course or program is always at your fingertips. In the event that someone has already started working on an update, you can see that too. 

What are the benefits?

If you are responsible for reviewing and approving changes, good curriculum management software will show you exactly what has changed between versions, saving all the time and effort involved in working out what you are being asked to approve.

Those responsible for student support will know how important it is for students to have access to accurate information in the catalog. Without it, students can make poor study choices which negatively impact their experience and sometimes lead to them dropping out altogether. Curriculum version management makes sure your students always have access to the right information.

Providing inaccurate information to students on enrolment is not just a source of irritation, it can lead to serious repercussions for the institution. Good curriculum management software offers the version management you need to make sure you have absolute confidence about the curriculum information you give to your students.
