Curriculog

Curriculog is SSU’s new online curriculum management system that was implemented during summer 2019 and that began being used for all curricular proposals during the 2019 fall semester. This self-contained platform allows the curriculum management process to take place entirely online, including working on proposals, communication and decisions. While Curriculog replaces all other paper and electronic forms, the development and review of curriculum remains the same faculty-driven process.

As SSU also uses Acalog, the electronic catalog system compatible with Curriculog, appropriate fields in the curriculum proposals may be populated from Acalog wherever possible. Once proposals receive final approval, curriculum changes will be migrated intact into Acalog for subsequent inclusion in the catalog. Users are also able to run an impact report for courses which list all dependent elements for a particular item such as prerequisites, corequisites, crosslistings and programs.

Secure access is tied to your SSU ID and password, and submitting decisions within the system takes the place of your signature.

What are the key features?

Curriculog creates the ability to:

  • Collaborate. This is designed for shared development and review of curriculum.
  • Track the real-time progress of proposals. You never have to wonder what happened to your paperwork. Decisions, comments, and committee votes are recorded at each level of approval.
  • Coordination: See what’s being proposed by other departments and offer comments or suggestions.

What happens after I submit my proposal?

Once proposals are submitted, they are routed through approvals which include the department chair, dean, curriculum committees, Academic Programs, EPC, GE and Graduate Studies subcommittees (as appropriate) and Academic Senate. Once they receive final approval, Academic Programs will export the course/program additions or updates into Acalog, our new online catalog.

Where can I get training and support for Curriculog?

You can come to a scheduled training.
