It’s been a long time! What’s up?
I’m currently working on timetabling and class enrolment.
I was able to familiarize myself with how Gibbon is handling this. It’s rather straight forward and works well so far.
The current manual system to conduct class enrolments causes significant work load. I had a few discussions with administrators in the past weeks and automatic class enrolment came up.
Some administrators suggested to enrole students into classes depending on their assigned roll group. Apparently, the number of classes and the number of roll groups are often the same.
Such an automatic class enrolment system would basically be the first step. Later, there would be fine adjustements, e.g. deleting a student from a particular class or adding the student to a new course, etc.
I was thinking that maybe student and class enrolment could be done at the same time, e.g. when accepting a student application.
What do you think? Does this make sense to you?
