Create once, use everywhere

Course descriptions are used in many places; prospective students will want to orient themselves when deciding where to apply, your LMS should ideally include a description of the topics to be covered, a grader need to know the expected learning outcome when grading exams, to name a few.

So how can ECMS help you?

This is usually solved on a request-when-needed basis using text documents and email.

  • Need a description for the marketing department?
  • Send an email to the course coordinator?
  • Need the expected learning outcome for a handful of courses being graded next week?
  • Send an email. But is the document you got last month really the final version?
  • Send an email and ask to be sure.
  • Different information in your catalog and your student information system?
  • Send an email after you've found out which version is the correct one (more emails).

This can easily turn into a stressful nightmare for all parties involved.

Edutorium Course Management System is the perfect tool to manage this seemingly impossible task.

Let's discover ECMS features

Workflows

Roles and permissions

Assigning roles is a way to empower selected individuals to perform system level tasks. Roles are separated from workflows in order to keep the number of roles manageable and to prevent privilege escalation.

Multilingual / Internationalization

Exchange students, visiting academic staff, the world of higher education is getting increasingly interconnected. In the Edutorium suite of tools, both the content and the graphical user interface for authorized users support multiple languages.

Audit trail and Changelog

Edutorium keeps track on who did what changes. The "who" might not be that important, but knowing the "what" is. Changes to a course description can have cascading effects through different systems and offices. Any two versions of e.g. a course description can be compared and differences will be highlighted.

Bulk operations

Do you need to move 100 course descriptions from one institute to another? Or set all program descriptions to published, but only those having reached a specific state in the workflow? You don't have to edit each and every one. Use reports and filter to narrow your selection, then check individual pieces of content you want to update in bulk.

Webservices

Modern web based tools need to communicate with other tools and Edutorium is no different. Content, terms and more can be accessed by authorized services to publish data where ever you want.

Get a kick start with imports

It is easy to underestimate the volume of information that goes into program and course descriptions. We don't. Coming from a different system, importing existing content before starting the next revision period in Edutorium can be a huge time saver.

If your current workflow is based on text documents and email, we would, in most cases, recommend start using the excellent editing features and streamlined term-system in Edutorium Course Management System to get the content correct from the start.

They trusted us:

After a frustrating year of trying to get another CMS on the air, it was a great relief to enter into a cooperation agreement with Norweb. Edutorium had most of the systematics and capabilities we needed at BI, and where we needed more, Norweb's developers showed forward-looking and solution-oriented and with a great deal of flexibility. So we ended up with a product that was very well adapted to our processes and workflow
