Developing the best-fitting schedules is often more difficult than it may seem. It is not just about placing all the teaching sessions. A schedule must take pedagogical criteria into account, optimize the use of the classrooms, observe needs and limitations, and, if possible, all personal preferences from the different stakeholders.
The GHC program is structured into three clearly differentiated components
The planner configures the elements and conditions:
- You can set different timetables:
- Overlapping in the same week.
- For different terms/semesters, etc.
- Allows you to load or create lists of overriding elements:
- Teaching subjects.
- Student groups.
- Courses and your academic plan.
- You can set up the following elements:
- Teaching sessions.
- On-call periods.
- Other teacher activities.
- Define strict and preferential conditions:
- Teacher availability.
- Preferences for the use of classrooms.
- Options and relationships between teaching sessions (electives, etc).
- Optimization criteria.
The engine is the core of GHC. You can find the optimal timetable that follows all needs and preferences entered in the planner.
- It is particularly useful when it is hard find a workable and optimal solution for your school.
- It offers an extraordinary ability to find solutions surprisingly quickly, if they exist.
- You can avoid overlaps of student groups, teachers and classrooms.
- The GHC Optimum engine seeks the optimal solution for your preferences and criteria and balanced for all members.
- The analyzer will help you identify those unsatisfiable conditions, if any, so that you can tailor them to a possible solution.
The editor will allow you to modify the results, present them and transfer them.
- It allows you to view the schedules that the engine offers you.
- The editor allows you to visualize the created timetables for students, teachers, classrooms, by departments, on-call or meeting schedules, etc.
- You will be able to manually move sessions and add new elements: the editor will flag up you if there is a conflict when making any manual changes.
- You will be able to transfer the timetables to other public and private academic management applications.
- It offers many different open presentation formats: HTML, PDF, CSV, etc.
- It generates reports on faculty assignments, compliance with preferences, teaching teams, tutors, sign-in sheets, etc.
