Case Study — Moving SWAU to a Modern, Dynamic Digital Catalog
We recently launched the academic catalog for Southwestern Adventist University, a modern, dynamic catalog that lets them easily manage their content while providing an easy-to-use front-end for their students and potential students. Here's the rundown on what we did.
AffordabilityAs a small liberal arts university, SWAU — like many colleges and universities — didn't have an unlimited budget for a course catalog solution. We were able to work with SWAU to come up with a solution that met all of their needs for an annual cost within their budget — and a fraction of what other catalog software providers quoted them.
Easy EditingSWAU already had a digital version of their catalog connected to their website, but it was difficult to make changes, and they couldn't always ensure that their content was accurate and up-to-date. Clean Catalog comes with modern editing systems that let you edit any content, track changes, clone content, and a host of other features that make managing your catalog content fast and easy.
Automate EverythingStaff at SWAU wear multiple hats, and the catalog, though important and an essential part of accreditation, often can't be their main focus. Clean Catalog automates as much of the catalog work as possible:
- Course information only has to be entered in one place and can be used throughout the catalog.
- Elective groups — groups of courses or requirements — can be created once and used on degrees throughout the site.
- Total credits for degrees and certificates are automatically calculated and updated if any information changes.
