Calendars for Anything with a Date and Time
RollCall autogenerates calendars for every item that has a date and a time. When a student registers for a class, their calendar shows all the sessions scheduled - on the Web, too! Instructors can set office hours, and adminstrators schedule appointments. Administrator calendars show scheduled tuition payments and you can automatically see room booking information when a class is assigned to a location.
Every entity in RollCall that has dates and times associated with their description can be displayed on a calendar. There are Student calendars, Class calendars, Instructor calendars, classroom calendars, Administrator calendars and schedules for clinic/lab appointments.
Each of the calendars allows comparison with any other calendar - you can see if an Instructor is free to take a class for example, or see if a student is free to schedule an appointment with a counselor. Instructors and Administrators can even setup office hours - which are shown with a different background on their calendar displays.
Right-click on an item to see more information, double-click to record information. For Classes, a double-click displays the attendance window, for Tutoring appointments and Exams it displays the respective results recording window.
Calendars also display alerts. If a student's attendance or grades have not been entered, the class will display in red on the calendar.
Student schedule information is displayed on the web site. Changes made in the Administration client are immediately displayed in the web calendar.
