Keeping track of information and managing life-cycle progress is challenging when that information is dispersed across offices and stored manually or in multiple digital document folders. Ensuring that your team is informed is equally challenging when workflows are manual and spread out across many systems.
APL nextED’s faculty information system solves the problem of manual tracking and managing of faculty-related information that can be dispersed across various offices and digital document folders. Our robust digital profile for every user contains all relevant information, including activity, credentials, workload, and teaching information. You can store digital notes with each profile, categorize profiles with custom attributes, and manage associated documents for tracking status and compliance.
