Three More California State University Schools Choose DIGARC
After a rigorous evaluation process, Cal State campuses in San Jose, Long Beach, and Humboldt State join eight others in the CSU system that chose DIGARC products to manage higher ed academic catalogs and curriculum.
LAKELAND, Fla. – New software for catalog and curriculum management will bring greater efficiency to three additional schools in the California State University system following their purchase of Acalog and Curriculog from Digarc. They join eight other institutions in the Cal State system that already use Digarc software for catalog and curriculum.
San Jose and Humboldt State Universities purchased the Curriculog curriculum management solution for higher education, and CSU Long Beach has chosen Digarc’s Acalog e-catalog platform. Implementation of the new systems is planned for later this year.
“We are pleased to welcome three new clients from the Cal State system,” says Digarc CEO Angie Selden. “Schools of all sizes in California and the rest of the country have seen numerous benefits from our software, including savings of time and money from automated workflows and built-in accountability. We are pleased that the marketplace has recognized these and other benefits and continues to make us the leader in this space.”
CSU institutions currently using Digarc solutions are Cal State Polytechnic, Channel Islands, East Bay, Fullerton, Los Angeles, Maritime Academy, San Marcos, and Stanislaus. Existing and newly adopting CSU institutions serve a total full-time equivalent enrollment of more than 160,000 students.
Digarc created Acalog, the world’s first online academic catalog, in 2001. Today, Acalog is the best-selling e-catalog software for higher education, in use at over 500 colleges and universities of all sizes in the U.S. and beyond.
Acalog’s records-based approach saves production time, increases accuracy, and ensures content is consistent, regardless of the medium in which it is presented. It includes student-friendly features such as the My Portfolio tool for capturing course preferences, a printable Degree Planner, and social media integration with Facebook and Twitter. Acalog typically reduces catalog production cycles from months to weeks, and is based on a relational database foundation allowing administrators to make edits just once in one place.
Introduced in 2012, Curriculog, includes robust tools to manage curriculum workflows. Curriculog’s centralized workflow structure allows faculty and administrators to collaborate on curriculum design, change, and approval processes, providing transparency and accountability in tracking proposals as they move from step to step.
Digarc provides an abundance of user resources to support its products, including personalized training, online tutorials and videos, and a world-class Client Support staff. The company also hosts an annual user conference for users of Acalog and Curriculog where Digarc staff and clients share tips, tricks and best practices with several hundred attendees each year.
With the addition of three CSU schools, 26 colleges and universities in California now use Digarc software, including the University of Southern California, Loyola Marymount University, and Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business Management.
