Why Choose Coursedog over Ad Astra
Institutions looking for a complete scheduling solution that offers real-time rule validation and workflows will find Coursedog to be an ideal solution. The additional benefit of institutional curriculum and catalogs connected with your scheduling solution brings your academic operations under one roof – clearing roadblocks to success for students.
Integrated Course, Room, and Event Scheduling:
Ad Astra is primarily a room scheduling tool that has some lightweight section scheduling features; however, it lacks key features such as real-time rules validation and dynamic workflow functionality. Coursedog has a fully integrated academic and event scheduling solution that makes it easy for institutions to schedule course sections, instructors, rooms, and events on campus.
Integrated Curriculum and Catalog Management:
Ad Astra has no tool for curriculum or catalog management. Coursedog’s modern, intuitive UI, self-serve capabilities, flexible data model, and high level of configurability results in higher administration and faculty adoption rates and a smoother change management experience.
Course Demand Projections
Ad Astra offers Predict, a degree pathway and historical-based analytics tool, that commonly falls short of providing trustworthy actionable data to adjust the course schedule in a way that helps administrators or students. Coursedog provides institutions with actionable academic reporting & course demand projections that support on-time completions and operational excellence.
Customer Service as a Top Priority:
While both companies share a commitment to customer service, Coursedog's partners experience a level of truly excellent care that is exemplified by our above-average NPS score.
Proven Bi-Directional SIS Integrations:
Coursedog is proud to offer bi-directional, real-time integrations with the industry’s leading SIS platforms: Oracle PeopleSoft, Ellucian Banner, Ellucian Colleague, Ellucian Colleague Ethos, Ellucian Powercampus, Anthology, and Jenzabar EX.
"One of the things it’s done for us that we’ve never had is a master calendar for the university. That’s been wonderful...We have less room conflicts, double bookings of events, things like that. More campus wide communication around what events are taking place, and when, and where...the quality of our data is much tighter now because the system doesn't allow for as many mistakes to happen.”
