Realising the Vision of a Single Source of Course Information

In September 2016 Cardiff University launched a new version of our undergraduate course finder, powered by programme data from our internal student record system.

The aim was to create a single source of course information for course approval, as marketing to prospective students, to be sent out to offer-holders as part of their contract and as a reference for current students.

Aside from the technical hurdles we had to overcome, our experience delivering this project highlights many of the challenges facing University digital teams: maintaining a single source of information, governance and compliance issues, organisational change, cross-University collaborative working, and meeting the user needs of prospective students in a competitive marketplace.
