eCurriculum Component in CQ Web Authoring System

e curriculum final output

The eCurriculum Component is particularly useful for colleges that want to have a clone of the program listing on their websites. This component will pull the data from eCurriculum and display that information in the format desired.

This method is much more preferable compared to managing such data on the local sites, since this data will update as eCurriculum is updated. This way, all of the information is stored in one place and will remain concurrent with the official information available on eCurriculum.

General Setup
