However, the process followed was labor intensive, time-consuming, and challenged with data integrity concerns. Even after painstakingly collecting the necessary data, organizing the catalog, and sharing data with other local systems, the coordinators had to go to each of the stakeholders to get approval for it all and wait for their response a process that would easily take precious weeks, months, or more. Further, if any of the stakeholders had to modify any curriculum, they would have to do so in different documents, making the process all the more difficult to effectively manage.
The focus was on maintenance than not innovation.
A digital solution was required that could serve as a single point in support of their curriculum management efforts. Fortunately, they found the exact solution in the curriculum management platform, META, offered by currIQūnet a provider of robust curriculum management solutions.

In no time, currIQūnet META transformed the in stitution’s entire course and program management cycles and academic catalog review, approval, and publishing processes to be more efficient and accurate. It no longer needed the many months or more for the academic institution to complete the task; they were able to complete it in much less time a massive feat that serves as a testimony to the capabilities of META. Furthermore, as the platform allowed the different stakeholders and administrators to review and approve the curriculum from a single centralized platform, it eliminated much of the coordinators’ manual workf low. Even today, the institution leverages currIQūnet META to successfully complete its curriculum-related processes within the specified timelines.
This is but one of many instances that stand to show currIQunet’s pursuit of technological excellence and customer satisfaction in its endeavors. Today, a number of colleges in the U.S. and elsewhere across the globe leverage the company’s web-based curriculum management platform not only to develop, review, and approve their academic courses but also to generate marketing materials and web content related to their curriculum. Even when some changes have to be incorporated into existing courses and programs, the platform allows clients to seamlessly modify information into the database as per their needs.
But, how can the platform deliver such robust capabilities?
Well, the currIQūnet META platform is built on metadata architecture. Data can be easily centralized, secured, and governed from multiple sources. The sophisticated architecture allows the platform to be configured to the smallest elements and integrated within the organizational hierarchy, while also allowing data governance controls to be assigned to relevant stakeholders.
