Overview Course & Daily Organiser  

 

The Overview Course covers the use of the Student Options and Timetable Development modules of The Timetabler. Student Options is covered on day one and Timetable Development is covered on days two and three. Participants will gain the most benefit from attending the three days consecutively to see the whole timetabling process. However the modules can be attended separately if preferred.

The Daily Organiser Course usually runs on the day following the Overview course and may also be attended separately or consecutively with the Overview Course.
