Information Technology and the Provost Office are pleased to announce a preview of a new online university course catalog. The new course catalog has been created with input from a working group made up of advisors and other providers of academic services, as well as feedback received since the initial launch of the catalog.
The preview of the new course catalog is to allow a live testing and feedback period to ensure a smoother rollout. The current course catalog will be available during the preview period, and will remain available for fall 2015 advising and registration purposes.
Since this is only phase one of the new online course catalog, the working group will consider feedback and identify the next set of features for subsequent phases, the goal being to replace and improve upon the existing course catalog tool.
As with any new system of this complexity, you may encounter something that doesn't work as expected. We appreciate your help in identifying any bugs or features that you would like to see. Please use the "Feedback" button on the new catalog pages to report any issues or suggestions you may have.
Check out the new course course catalog at courses.newschool.edu. We will send additional information about the rollout as it becomes available.
Some of the improved functionality in the new course catalog:
- Free form basic search tool where you can search by words such as topics, faculty name, course title, etc.
- Basic sorting can be done at the top of the results listings by course, semester, number of credits, etc.
- Clicking on "Advanced Search" will drop down more features which allows for more granular filtering of results
- In the course listings, clicking on "Course Page" will open a new page displaying course details, while clicking anywhere else will expand to show more course information including section details
