Free Discussion for Academic Schedulers: “The Transition Out of Socially Distanced Scheduling” May 6 at 11:00 AM, PDT

 


The second of two CollegeNET-hosted discussion sessions for academic schedulers will help schools plan for their return to on-campus instruction.  This informal conversation will allow schedulers to compare notes with other schools and brainstorm different approaches for transitioning out of socially distanced scheduling. 

The first session, held in April, filled up quickly. Many participants reported that the Schedule25® Optimizer was very helpful in adjusting to closures during the pandemic, and schedulers are continuing to rely on the Optimizer as their schools prepare for the move away from socially distanced scheduling.

How is your campus planning to make this transition to Fall and Winter scheduling?  Join fellow schedulers to share experiences and ideas and learn from the insights of your colleagues.

CollegeNET Hosts Free Discussions for Academic Schedulers: The Transition Out of Socially Distanced Scheduling - April 22 and May 6 at 11:00 AM, PDT

To help schools plan for their return to on-campus instruction, CollegeNET will facilitate informal discussion sessions for academic schedulers. These conversations will allow schedulers to compare notes with other schools and brainstorm different approaches for transitioning out of socially distanced scheduling. 

Fall and Winter scheduling needs are variable and subject to change. Many schools are being asked to be flexible: some schools plan to meet in person, some are completely virtual, and some land in the middle. How is your campus planning to make this transition?  

Join these free discussions to share ideas, ask questions, and learn from the insights of your colleagues.

"No Other Product Offers This!” -- University of Utah Students Get Career-Ready with StandOut Video Interviewing Practice

Recognizing that strong video interviewing skills are becoming essential for students preparing to enter the job market, Stan Inman, Director of the Career & Professional Development Center, at the University of Utah, began searching for a video-based system that would help the school meet that challenge.

Career coaches at The U envisioned a self-service tool that would enable students to practice and review on their own time. But they also hoped to find a practice platform that would allow students to share their videos with them – as well as with mentors, parents, and peers – to review and give feedback.

StandOut was chosen and implemented at the Career & Professional Development Center and quickly became popular among students, who can now practice, record, and review interviews on their own time; and among career coaches, who appreciate having a robust platform to enhance their coaching services. 

 “The ability to create a database of questions organized according to specific disciplines and careers is extremely beneficial,” says Mr. Inman. “We were impressed with the overall quality of the product, but particularly the AI language scoring technology. No other product offers this! CollegeNET’s stability in the higher ed market was also a big selling point. We know we can count on the company to provide continued upgrades and enhancements.” 

StandOut Video Interviewing Benefits:

  • Self-guided practice and re-recording 
  • Feedback from mentors, instructors and peers 
  • Speaking skills scored via AI and cognitive computing 
  • Unlimited customizable questions 
  • Scalability and adaptability to classroom settings 
  • Boosts confidence and speaking skills 
  • Ideal for English-as-a-second-language students 
  • Develops critical interviewing skills in the age of social distancing

The New CollegeNET 25Live and CourseLeaf CLSS Integration Combines Course Scheduling and Automated Best-Case Room Placement for Optimal Schedule Building

 Integrating 25Live® and CLSS® technology allows schedulers to quickly and efficiently select the best room and class section pairings 

By enabling access to 25Live classroom data while building a course schedule in CLSS, the new integration eliminates the need to move between systems. Now, schedulers have additional functionality and flexibility to plan multiple scenarios, forecast demand, and create an optimized course and room schedule.

We’re tremendously excited about this integration and expanded partnership,” said Julia Noonan, CollegeNET’s Vice President of Sales. “We’ve worked closely with CourseLeaf for some time now to serve our mutual clients’ needs. We’re pleased that this latest collaboration enables room schedulers to leverage 25Live technology when creating their class schedules.”

“We are excited about this integration because it adds yet another tool - our Look and Book functionality - to CLSS that enables institutions to make better scheduling decisions utilizing data pulled from 25Live,” said Lee Brintle, CourseLeaf CEO.  “We consistently work with our partners to deliver additional value to our customers, and we could not be more thrilled to work with CollegeNET on this integration.”
