Academic Structure

Dear SLCM Experts,

Is it possible/advisable to configure SLCM, (up to) sub topic/Unit wise? Client wants me to configure subject as module group, topics as modules and sub-topics as business event type.

For example if a particular subject (To Be as-Module group) has 150 Topics (To Be as-Modules) and each Topic has 4-10 sub topics (To Be as-Business Events) taken by same instructor.

Note that each class is of 1 hour through out the session.

Subject Topic Subtopic Hrs Reqd (All) Instructor(All)

    Hi Vinod,

    the drawback I see from what you propose is that you won't be able to grade or alocate credits at Module Group Level. So if you need to place a grade for the whole "module", you won't be able to do it.

      Yes, it is complex to mantain. But the way you said they want to handle this (to have a Module Group as a subject, then topics as modules, and then event types as subtopics) is also complex (you will need an event per each event type you have, so you will need many events as well). And you don't have unified the subject in one module, that is useful for other purposes, like grading, etc.

      Other thing you can look at is to use Teaching Workload to define the topics/subtopics and assign them the time and instructor required by each topic/subtopic. You create one module and one event type. Then create one Business Event with all the schedule of the course, and in teaching workload, you assign each topic/subtopic to an instructor, with the hours required. I really don't know if this was created for things like this, but you can try. You should define the topics/subtopics as Teaching Activities. Then you will have the information to use in some kind of report you may create.

      Just an idea! I am sorry if I cannot give you a brightest one, I am not very inspired these days! Maybe someone else have a better solution to propose.

      Good Luck again.
