Isothermal Community College Adopts Coursedog
Isothermal Community College Keeps Students at the Center with Coursedog’s Integrated Academic Operations Platform
Isothermal Community College adopts Coursedog’s integrated academic operations platform, which includes academic and event scheduling, curriculum and catalog management, academic reporting and course demand projection solutions. Isothermal’s goal in partnering with Coursedog is to improve efficiencies and carry out their academic operations in a way that keeps students at the center of their work.
“As a smaller school, sometimes it seems easier and faster to do things by paper, but ultimately those processes catch up to you and affect students. We were looking for a way to be better and more efficient.” Robby Walters, CIO
Empowered with a platform that streamlines their processes and automates curricular and scheduling policy validation, it’s easier and faster for the Isothermal team to execute optimized schedules for students. Like many other institutions, Isothermal is looking to drive enrollment over the next few years, and see having tools in place to create accessible, equitable schedules as a key component of that growth plan.
While student success was the primary goal in partnering with Coursedog, a close second was implementing a tool that faculty and staff would find easy to use.
“We were excited that Coursedog’s user interface was modern and easy-to-use. These factors matter because it means faculty and staff are able to actually see what is going on with things such as our schedule and that will result in increased efficiencies and reduce errors as well.” Robby Walters, CIO
Isothermal Community College is now equipped with the tools they need to execute their academic operations in a more efficient and optimized manner that ultimately will help the institution reach and retain more students.
