Transform your academic catalog into the centerpiece of your website
Your academic catalog is no longer just a list of courses, programs and policies—it’s one of the most visited areas of your website by prospective and current students. Increase data accuracy across campus systems and support student success by embedding your catalog into your institution’s websites and integrating it with your SIS. Make a change once and publish it everywhere, without duplicate entry and the risk of error.
Turn your catalog into a destination—not just a publication
Today’s learners demand modern web experiences and interactivity and ACALOG catalogs deliver with photos, videos and other rich media. Social media integrations encourage students to keep friends and family informed during their college search while also generating links back to your website for their friends who are likely prospective students themselves. In a 2017 client survey, ACALOG users reported a 90% average increase in student engagement.
Make every student a power user
Ensure students can quickly and easily find the info they need with ACALOG’s industry-leading search functionality and the ability to keep archived catalogs available alongside your current catalogs. By incorporating printable Degree Planners and guided pathways information, you can help students stay on track and graduate on time or transfer. Empower students to plan their college careers with individual course portfolios that they can share with advisors.
Stop publishing outdated catalogs
Make a change in one location in your ACALOG catalog and it’s updated everywhere the data is referenced, including other websites with the API enabled. Import approved curriculum directly from CURRICULOG effortlessly, so you eliminate the tedious work of checking for continuity across digital assets. Manage stakeholder edits, request approvals and publish catalogs in real time from an intuitive, easy-to-use interface. In a 2017 client survey, ACALOG users reported a 75% reduction in the time it took to produce their catalog.
Increase collaboration and transparency
Empower departmental editors to make catalog changes while keeping a comprehensive audit trail of every edit that can be maintained for the life of the catalog. Support any number of editors working on their own schedule or concurrently, and track edits with timestamps, user IDs, comments and approval records. Attach critical curriculum documents, including learning objectives, administratively to courses and programs.
Implement easily in just 3-4 months for faster ROI
An experienced 7-plus member implementation team will be dedicated to your project start-to-finish, not a revolving door of staff unfamiliar with your unique needs. Unlike other solutions that take 6-12 months to implement and make you return for ongoing support, your ACALOG catalogs will be up and running in an average of 3-4 months so you can quickly start saving time and stop printing outdated catalogs.
