January 30
Interactive Schedule Builder
Intended Audience: Registrars and Schedulers

The Interactive Schedule Builder (ISB) provides a hands-on approach to master schedule creation. You have complete control of the priority and order of the courses to be scheduled and each stage of the scheduling process. An on-screen matrix shows student availability by day, week, and term for each course to be scheduled. This program allows you to create dynamic course sections – eliminating the need to pre-define course sections prior to a scheduling run. You can determine enrollment limits, designate resources, link paired courses and labs. And you can use “What if?” scenarios to experiment with different schedules to determine which one best meets the needs of your students and the resources of your school.

January 31
ASB: A Suite of Scheduling Tools
Intended Audience: Registrars and Schedulers 

The Automated Schedule Builder does more than build your section table. Pull Students from their sections. Pull room and teacher assignments from the sections. Assign rooms and teachers to the section table. Select sections to mass delete. Even if the ASB is not your scheduling tool of choice, it still has a lot to offer.
