The online Curriculum Mapping Tool has been developed to enable the mapping of curriculum against a set of user-defined statements. The tool is designed so that users can set up an instance of the tool to map a grouping of Units or Courses comprising a Major or Degree against a set of Criterion Statements (for example TLO statements against which the curriculum is to be evaluated).
- Most of the elements in the tool are editable in order to maximise ability to use it for mapping against different kinds of standards statements.
- The Report function produces a ‘traffic light’ report that provides a visual representation for each group of Units, indicating where standards are reached or not achieved.
- The current version of the tool was developed by software development company Insight4 (www.insight4.com)
Installing the tool
The technical design of the tool assumes that the organisational unit that owns, or is responsible for, courses will be the owner of an instance of the tool. A University or Faculty wishing to host the tool for use by several organisational units (for example, Schools) can take the following advice:
1. The simplest solution is to clone the virtual machine that hosts the current instance, and give it a new name.
2. Alternatively, it’s such a simple service that additional instances could easily be set up on the same virtual machine. Either each could have a different domain name (eg, cmt.agsci.utas.edu.au, cmt.health.utas.edu.au), or each instance could run as the same name, but under a different URL (eg. cmt.utas.edu.au/agsci, cmt.utas.edu.au/health).
