Five Years of CourseWorks at Columbia

Home > News & Updates > Five Years of CourseWorks at Columbia

December 5, 2006. This winter marks the fifth anniversary of CourseWorks at Columbia. When the course management system was first introduced in Spring 2002, it was used in about 640 courses. During the Fall 2006 semester, it has been used by more than 2,700 courses throughout Columbia University by more than 25,000 faculty, staff, and students. Over the years, CourseWorks has evolved to meet the growing needs of the University including a photo roster feature for instructors, an improved discussion board interface, a quiz and poll option, and guest access for Columbia-affiliated users with a valid UNI. These evolutionary changes will continue while we research a more comprehensive replacement that will incorporate many of the recent innovations in educational and colaborative tools while maintaining a solid course management infrastructure.

CourseWorks is offered by CUIT and CCNMTL in close coordination with the Libraries and Columbia University Biomedical and Health Information Services. For more information on how to take advantage of the many features offered by CourseWorks, please browse the documentation or attend one of the workshops that will be offered in the upcoming spring semester.
