One Place to Schedule, Staff and Assess Courses and Programs
The Courses Module is a place for managing custom staffing assignment workflows and connecting staffing assignments to compensation and contracting. This module also provides functionality for faculty and institutional users to view and share course resources, texts, documents, classroom needs, outcomes, and teaching and learning artifacts.
Staffing qualified faculty to teach course sections is often a cumbersome process that involves enrollment data, credentialing, faculty workload, and scheduling. The related work of tracking and managing course resources, texts, documents, classroom needs, outcomes, and teaching and learning artifacts is complicated and performed inefficiently when using non-integrated systems.
The Courses Module integrates faculty data with course data resulting in staffing optimization. Staffing activities are performed via the platform according to your protocols. Staffing is simplified when administrators view real-time enrollment data and match faculty profiles reflecting qualifications, availability, and capacity to teach. Adding teaching agreement language to the configurations further customizes the staffing workflow. Staffing statuses and faculty workload are updated in real-time which provides an up-to-date record of staffing activity.
Views of course details provide faculty with course information including texts and resources, classroom type, and assessment requirements. Workflows to manage faculty feedback, required course documents, and outcome data can be set up. Assessment planning and scheduling can also be managed in this module as well.
Use the Courses Module to:
- Schedule future courses
- Staff courses and certify faculty as qualified to teach
- Set staffing assignments to inform compensation and contracting
- Manage course reassignment and release time
- Maintain classroom requirements
- Keep track of course texts, resources, and outcomes
- Conduct course and program assessment
“ APL’s software has been valuable to our institution as it has allowed us to store all of our faculty information in one place and develop a more centralized, formal way to document and track faculty teaching history, credentials, qualifications, workloads and more for all faculty and courses. ”
