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.
Blended Learning Management
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 resolve this using a Request a Seat feature whereby students are offered a physical seat up to the room’s 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.
SEAtS calendar presents students with either a link to an online lecture (Teams, Moodle, Zoom) or the physical room details to maintain clarity.
