Rice has partnered with Leepfrog Technologies to streamline several of the labor-intensive processes that occur at Rice. Leepfrog provides a suite of applications that include workflow and validation for core university processes.
This page is intended to provide general information and updates about the implementation of the purchased software. If you have specific questions that are not addressed here, please email Justin Schilke, Associate Registrar.
The CourseLeaf Section Scheduler (CLSS) is designed to assist schools to plan, develop, and update the course schedule. For Rice, it will help us achieve more efficient course and classroom scheduling by eliminating the thousands of pieces of paper that are disbursed throughout campus each semester, make it easier for departments to meet the two-thirds rule for prime time course scheduling, and create transparency across departments and schools to proactively address course scheduling issues before they occur.
The CourseLeaf Catalog (CAT) is a comprehensive Catalog Management System that is designed to assist schools in maintaining the university curricular requirements and policies in an interactive format. For Rice, we will be using it to revise the General Announcements.
The CourseLeaf Curriculum (CIM) module is a course inventory and curriculum management platform, with customized online forms and automated workflows, designed to ensure accuracy across an institution’s courses and programs. For Rice, it will allow departments and schools to collect the needed information for revisions to curriculum and courses, provide notifications across campus for affected units, and integrate into the General Announcements so that revisions don't need to be made on each and every General Announcement page.
After the CAT implementation is complete, we will begin the CIM implementation for use beginning in August 2017.
