Detailed Overview of the Kuali Student Curriculum Management with Demonstration

This session will provide an overview of the Kuali Student 1.1 which represents the latest Kuali Student development effort. Institutions are adapting to serve a variety of learners and learning styles. They are developing curricular offerings that are vastly different and more complex than what traditional curriculum management software is capable of supporting. Kuali Student is addressing these issues. This session will also review how the new project methodology manages and prioritizes the partnering institutions' business requirements and technical constraints.

The proposal is submitted and eventually approved. Modify an existing course Scenario: Fred modifies this course to (1) change the Subject Code and (2) add a pre-requisite. The modification is approved. Compare course versions Scenario: Fred compares the two versions of the course.

Capture the way courses are related to programs, via rules 3. Feed a published catalog on one side and (possibly) a degree audit on the other 4. Enable Curriculum Managers to understand the dependencies between programs and courses 5. Provide the basis for program exploration
  12. 12. 12 Program Design Approach • Start with Undergraduate – Baccalaureate – Major • Specializations (pathway, track) – General Education Program – Departmental Honors Program – Minor • Dig into Requirements – Associate Courses with Programs – Capture other conditions to be met for Entrance, Progression and Completion
