u-planning

ASSIGNMENT OF SCHEDULES, CLASSROOMS AND INSTRUCTORS

u-planning assists institutions in their academic planning process.

For each course or degree plan, u-planning generates groups or sections, simulates different schedules, and automatically assigns instructors to each section based on optimization algorithms that will deliver the best possible solution based on pre-determined preferences.

Benefits

  • Creates an efficient and standardized process for schedule planning.
  • Makes optimal use of infrastructure , saves time, and provides schedule simulation for "what if" scenarios.
  • Assigns the best instructor based on variable criteria such as assessment, cost per hour, schedule availability and travel times.
  • Analyzes various simulated scenarios in minutes, facilitating decision making and delivering more efficient resource use.
  • Decreases overall planning time required.

Features

  • For future academic periods, student groups or sections are created for each subject with the minimum number of sections.
  • Schedules for each class are created that follow the rules and preferences established by programs or departments.
  • Based on availability, the best instructor is assigned to each section as a function of variables configured by the institution.
  • The overall schedule for a group is taken into consideration and preserved.
  • Travel times between building or among campuses are considered when creating schedules.

u-improve is useful for students, for fellow academics, for the accreditation process, the design of a curriculum, and checking the curriculum is actually meeting its objectives.
