Abstract

This paper presents the Faculty Module of ReProTool Version 3.0 (www.reprotool.com), a software tool that is used for (re)designing and enhancing university programmes using the Bologna Process directives to achieve ECTS Label certification. The tool is the result of an eighteen months project (February 2012 - July 2013), co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Cyprus through the Research Promotion Foundation. The project entails the development and pilot use of ReProTool, a software tool that supports the design and development of university academic programmes using Learning Outcomes and the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) of the Bologna Process. The paper presents the results of an online questionnaire that was distributed to faculty members aiming at extracting the user requirements of the system. Based on these results and the results from interviews with experts and literature review, the faculty module of ReProTool Version 2.0 was redesigned. Various screenshots of the system are used in the paper to exemplify the functionality of the specific module.
