Liverpool John Moores University selects CourseLoop

Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) has become the latest UK university to select the CourseLoop Platform as its preferred curriculum management solution.  The need to invest in a new curriculum management system was considered a key input to enabling LJMU’s strategic goal of delivering Excellence in Education as well as advancing implementation of the University's Digital Strategy.

When scanning the market for a new solution, LJMU were looking for a complete curriculum management product which could manage their full curriculum end to end, from programme and module design, to validation, approval and publication. In addition to the product, they were also wanting to partner with a vendor with the technical consulting expertise to manage an implementation of this level of complexity.

"We are excited to be working with our third UK-based client and partnering with LJMU on their journey to implement the CourseLoop Platform as their complete curriculum management solution."

LJMU’s specific requirements were for a curriculum management solution which could provide:

  • A single source of truth for the University’s curriculum
  • High quality and reliable data
  • Effective and efficient processes across the University
  • Reduced processing and administration time
  • Quality assurance processes
  • Detailed and flexible reporting
  • Flexibility/configurability to support changes in requirements and processes
  • Integration with LJMU systems via APIs

The Solution

The CourseLoop Platform comprises a series of modules which establish a common data model and consistent user interface as a foundation, but then provide the flexibility to address operational priorities incrementally by adding on additional modules.  Based on the broad scope of requirements, LJMU have chosen to implement the full CourseLoop product suite:

  • Curriculum Data Management - to provide the foundation for all curriculum information and deliver the definitive source of truth
  • Curriculum Governance - to deliver workflow and process efficiency
  • Curriculum Mapper - to enable mapping of curriculum to professional accreditation requirements
  • Curriculum Marketer - to provide ability to draft and approve curriculum-specific marketing content 
  • Curriculum Publisher - to enable marketing content to be combined and published with the relevant academic content
  • Curriculum Review - to support periodic curriculum reviews.

LJMU is now the third CourseLoop client based in the UK following on from Nottingham Trent University and the University of Huddersfield.
