About Us

Birth of an idea

Since I developed my first BASIC application on an Apple IIc in 1984, I’ve been interested in solving real world problems with technology. A career in software development brought me to management and leadership roles in Banking and then into Higher Education. Then one fateful day in 2014, a senior academic colleague invited me to be part of the team preparing her faculty’s submission for course accreditation by the Australian Computer Society (ACS). It was a mammoth, and entirely manual process.

There has to be a better way, I thought. Surely someone has already solved this problem. After scanning the market globally, I was convinced that no company was addressing Curriculum Management, end-to-end, properly. Someone should. And that someone may as well be me, and thus CourseLoop’s purpose was set, and the platform was born.

Growth of the platform

 

Since the first go-live in 2016 with our anchor client, Monash University, the CourseLoop Platform has evolved into a sophisticated, enterprise-grade curriculum management solution. CourseLoop has experienced significant growth, having partnered with clients across Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom.


Every month at leading universities worldwide more than 730,000 students use a CourseLoop catalog to plan their studies.

More than 85,000 academic and administrative staff are benefiting from CourseLoop’s curriculum management solution every day.


What drives us

At the core of our company, every team member is passionate about solving the end-to-end curriculum management challenges facing universities today and into the future.

Our success has been driven by our deep understanding and expertise in curriculum management, our genuine strategic partnership approach to working with clients, and a relentless focus on a high-quality user experience.

 

Adapting to COVID-19 together

The Higher Education sector globally has been hit hard by COVID-19. Our clients’ successes are inherent in our successes, so we have dug deep to ensure our clients can continue their digital transformation journeys.

One such client was UCLA. More than 7,900 miles apart and working from home, CourseLoop and UCLA’s teams worked closely together online to implement the CourseLoop Platform. We were able to successfully launch the new UCLA Catalog in July 2021, delivering a modern, digital-first experience to their current and prospective students.
