Rethinking Curriculum Solutions

WIDS is a powerful online platform that supports consistent design, alignment, and management of curriculum across your entire organization.

CENTRALIZE PROGRAM AND COURSE CONTENT

Easily access any course or program in your organization.  Secure your college-owned data so it is consistent across the institution.  Manage learning plans and materials in the repository and share them with every instructor teaching the course.  

STREAMLINE COURSE SYLLABI CREATION AND ARCHIVING

Quickly create course syllabi incorporating approved course information—no more incorrect course descriptions!  Easily enforce consistent college guidelines and syllabus templates.  Automate the syllabus archival process.

SIMPLIFY CURRICULUM REVIEW

Record and share feedback from reviewers and keep the team in the loop with automatic email notifications.  Approve curriculum and control “go live” dates.

PLAN FOR CURRICULUM IMPROVEMENT

Create program effectiveness and continuous improvement plans. Curriculum mapping and assessment planning allow colleges to see where outcomes and standards are introduced, practiced and assessed.  Program assessment task rubrics include criteria students successfully meet at various milestones in a program. Assessment plans determine benchmarks for success. Assessment analysis links back evidence of those benchmarks and plans made for future student success.

MEET ACCREDITATION REQUIREMENTS

Use a well-defined process for outcome assessment. Document student learning outcomes and thread college wide outcomes into courses across the college.  Develop curriculum maps with real-time updating in courses and programs.  Reports are saved online for easy access and sharing.

INTEGRATE WITH OTHER SYSTEMS

Import curriculum data from other systems to WIDS, or export WIDS curriculum data to use in websites, college catalogues, or your learning management system. WIDS now has Blackboard Building Block integration capabilities – design in WIDS and deliver in Blackboard!
