The ongoing COVID-19 has left some serious impacts on education, bringing academic activities to a halt, and restrictions have been in place to hamper the proliferation of the virus. The utilization of technology these days plays a vital role in assisting students in attending education online or blended learning and keeping academic activities running. However, limited learning management systems present a new problem in online learning, especially in higher education. Thus, a new information system is required to resolve this issue. This study aims to develop the Bauran information system to assist lecturers in higher education with curriculum design and semester lesson plans and to evaluate the effectiveness of Bauran's implementation using the ISO 25010 model. The material used during the research process included the Bauran application, Guidelines for Developing Higher Education Curriculum, and some data from relevant users to test the application. Meanwhile, during the development stage of the research, the prototype method was used to adjust the development to the feedback given by stakeholders. This application received positive feedback from relevant users regarding the curriculum development flow in line with the Guidelines of Curriculum Drafting for Higher Education. Using the ISO 25010 model during the testing process, the results of user evaluations demonstrated its effectiveness with an average score of 4.84 out of 5. Future research is expected to evaluate the long-term effectiveness of Bauran using a larger sample size and a different software evaluation model.
