The overall aims of the Course Data project at the University of Sussex are: • to improve the information that we provide to students and prospective students • to support an on-going radical overhaul of degree programmes at the University To achieve this, we need to streamline our course data processes. We will extend our existing web-based Course and Module Design tool and we will streamline the approvals process by building an Online Workflow Approvals tool. The project will support students' decision-making by providing automated creation of two important data feeds – the Key Information Set (KIS) and XCRI-CAP v1.2.

Course Data Stage 2 University of Sussex

The overall aims of the Course Data project at the University of Sussex are:

  • to improve the information that we provide to students and prospective students
  • to support an on-going radical overhaul of degree programmes at the University

To achieve this, we need to streamline our course data processes. We will extend our existing web-based Course and Module Design tool and we will streamline the approvals process by building an Online Workflow Approvals tool. The project will support students' decision-making by providing automated creation of two important data feeds – the Key Information Set (KIS) and XCRI-CAP v1.2.

Objectives

Streamline course data processes

  • Further develop the Course and Module Design tool to include support for design of new courses and modules, and the review and modification of existing ones
  • support a flexible approvals process for new and revised courses and modules
  • build a process to synchronise data with the student system

Provide high-quality information for students and prospective students

  • implement and host an XCRI-CAP 1.2 system-generated feed for undergraduate, postgraduate, full and part time programmes
  • build an application to deliver the Key Information Set data for KIS collection 2012/13 and beyond

Anticipated Outputs and Outcomes

  • Current and prospective students have access to data they need to make important choices and to support them in their study
  • Improved flows for Course and Module Approval save staff time and effort and provide consistency across different Schools
  • XCRI-CAP and KIS feeds are available
