University of Central Florida Selects Catalog and Curriculum Software by Digarc
The nation’s largest university will implement Acalog and Curriculog to manage academic catalogs and curriculum for its campuses in metropolitan Orlando.
LAKELAND, Fla. – New software for catalog and curriculum management will bring greater efficiency and streamlined workflows to the University of Central Florida following their purchase of Acalog and Curriculog from Digarc.
UCF joins over 525 higher education institutions in the U.S. and beyond that already use Digarc’s industry-leading solutions.
Acalog, Digarc’s e-catalog software, has been shown to reduce academic catalog production cycle time by 46 percent on average. Colleges and universities also report substantial cost savings and a significant boost in student engagement with the software.
Acalog also 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 reduces catalog production cycles from months to weeks, and is based on a relational database foundation, which allows administrators to make edits just once in one place.
UCF also purchased the Curriculog curriculum management tool, which benefits schools with simplified processes that eliminate paper and increase accountability with user-configurable forms and rule-based routing processes. Schools most often see more than 50% reduction in the overall effort to manage the curriculum development process across the institution.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome the University of Central Florida to the Digarc portfolio of clients,” said CEO Angie Selden. “UCF joins a prestigious list of institutions we serve, including Purdue University, the University of Pittsburgh, the University of Southern California, the University of Virginia, and the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Our solutions benefit not only catalog and curriculum managers at these and other institutions, but their students and communities as well.”
Implementation of the new software at UCF is planned for later this year.
As one of the world’s leading research institutions and the largest university by enrollment in the United States, UCF serves more than 64,000 students from 157 countries, all 50 states, and Washington, D.C.
With the addition of UCF, 17 Florida colleges and universities use Digarc software, including UF Graduate School, Florida A&M, Florida Polytechnic University, and Florida State College at Jacksonville.
