Abstract: In 2011, the Hellenic Quality Assurance and Accreditation Agency prepared and distributed a course outline template, in paper format, to be filled in by the university tutors. This template contains details about learning outcomes, generic skills, teaching and assessment procedures for each course. The teaching staff, having little knowledge on the aforementioned topics, faced serious difficulties in filling it in. Thus, we developed a web-based information system for outlining courses in our institution. It guides the user (tutor) step-by-step to properly record, document and store every detail of a course, and export it to a pdf file. Additionally, by recording the information in a database, it allows any kind of queries, thus it offers various statistics in university/school/departmental level on the usage of verbs of the Bloom’s taxonomy, about the nurtured generic skills, about the students’ workload per course, etc. The system is user-friendly, according to the results of a shor t survey, and it is fully expandable. This paper focuses on the presentation of the web-based system application along with the benefits it introduces firstly for the tutors and secondly for the quality assurance team of the university.
