The Ethos platform connects people, processes, and applications across higher education institutions, powering the essential work of colleges and universities.
Integrating Coursedog’s Integrated Academic Operations Platform with Colleague through Ethos enables institutions to capitalize on the synergies between their scheduling and curriculum management processes. With deeper insight into their data, colleges and universities can leverage variables like degree pathways and student demand to make informed decisions that maximize financial health and student success. Administrators at universities that have integrated with Coursedog through Ethos have reported saving time and budget that they are able to re-allocate towards student-facing initiatives.
Coursedog utilizes the Ethos Business and Data Layer APIs to synchronize optimized scheduling and curriculum information between the Colleague and Coursedog systems in real time, creating a seamless integration experience for schedulers, registrars and curriculum planning staff.
“We’re pleased to partner with Coursedog to deliver solutions that support our customers in integrating academic operations,” said Kuljit Dharni, Senior Vice President of Partnerships, Ellucian. “The Ellucian ecosystem is enabled by our Ethos Integration platform, which uses Business and Data layer APIs to create seamless connections between both Ellucian and non-Ellucian solutions. The Ethos enabled Ellucian and Coursedog integration will help clients achieve faster time to value with increased visibility into their entire curriculum data lifecycle.”
“As institutions are more focused than ever on executing student-centric, data-driven, and cost-efficient academic operations it is critical that they are able to leverage easy-to-use tools like Coursedog to achieve long-term success,” said Justin Wenig, Co-Founder and CEO of Coursedog. “We are thrilled to partner with Ellucian to help colleges and universities integrate with Coursedog in order to unlock the benefits of modernizing their academic operations and meet their strategic enrollment management goals.
