COURSELEAF: CIM AND CAT
In Fall 2017, UNCG elected to implement the Curriculum Inventory Management (CIM) and Catalog (CAT) modules of the CourseLeaf system produced by Leepfrog. CIM and CAT replace the existing processes for proposing, reviewing, and approving changes to courses and programs, and the annual production of the University Catalog (formerly the Undergraduate and Graduate Bulletins).
CIM enables online submission, editing, tracking, and approval of new and existing courses and programs.
CAT enables the editing and publishing of catalog content to web, mobile, and print (PDF) platforms.
An integrated, web-based system, CourseLeaf’s CIM and CAT modules will significantly enhance UNCG’s curriculum and catalog by providing faculty and staff with more efficient, accurate, and accessible management of the University’s curriculum and catalog.
