Tom Broens - act-E: Unravel your curriculum
"We develop act-E, a unique online curriculum information system. It helps students, teachers and managers to unravel their education. Courses are no longer ‘islands’ but part of a bigger picture: the curriculum. A high-quality curriculum is designed to have a consistent allignment and build-up of learning goals, assessment and activities. Designing and maintaining such a curriculum is not ease without suitable tooling."
