SEAtS Thermal Scanner

New Feature: Search Available Rooms

Timetables are a fluid entity in the early stages of a new academic year. Students jump from one course to another, there are room resource restrictions and, of course, room capacity obligations based on social distancing. These are just some of the challenges facing timetable management.

With SEAtS Room Search, administrators can search for alternative room availability based on location, and capacity. Once an alternative room has been found, SEAtS reassigns students and staff to the new class via an updated timetable event, all with just one click.

New Feature: Reserve A Seat

A big challenge in the upcoming academic year is how to assign students to online and physical classes. With a scheduled class of 150, and physical room capacity set at 75, the obvious approach would be to alternative online and physical classes between the students. However, there will be students who do not wish to attend any physical classes which brings a level of complexity.

SEATS resolves this using a Request a Seat feature whereby students are offered a physical seat up to the capacity on a first come first serve basis. For room efficiency, students can release the seat they have booked if they change their mind which then goes back into a round robin system to maximise physical room attendance.

New Feature: Enhanced Online Engagement

When does attendance transition to engagement? SEAtS powerful online engagement tool eAttend captures live class attendance, as well as student engagement analysis of a particular class resource up to 3 days after the timetabled event. This gives a broader interpretation of student engagement, and allows advisors to analyse how students are interacting with online resources during and after the live event.
