Instructor Support

How It Works

Managing instructors and students can be a complex task depending on a number of situations and other variables. Since there are a variety of scenarios including formal and informal schools and independent instructors, this system is designed to permit several rule sets. The default configuration has instructor support disabled. Two modes of instructor support may be enabled, the first allows all users the option to select an instructor at the time a resource is reserved. The second option allows only superusers to link instructors to reservations. In either case it is typical for administrators to give instructors super-user rights so that they may make reservations on behalf of their students.

In either configuration mode, student reservations of resources may be linked to individual instructors and both students and instructors are notified via e-mail of all reservations, cancellations, linking and un-linking events, which affect their schedule. Depending on the configuration chosen, administrators or instructors may need to validate such events to ensure their accuracy. For instance, the system prevents the linkage of an instructor who has a conflicting reservation or student reservation however if students are allowed to link instructors to their reservations the instructor may then subsequently need to determine if he or she is indeed available at the time of that reservation. The instructor may have an external conflict (such as a doctors appointment) which the system cannot know about, which precludes the instructor from meeting the student at the selected time. In that case the instructor or administrator can simply unlink the instructor from such reservations. Students are notified of such unlinking events. Cancelling a reservation automatically deletes any instructor links that may have been associated with that reservation.
