Course planning

The ideal timetable for every student

Students can select their own courses and therefore have their own individual timetable. Course planning also shows which optional courses can be held simultaneously without students ending up with too many NTPs (non-teaching periods).

Module features

In many school systems, e.g. in Germany’s sixth form, students can select their lessons individually. This means that it is no longer the classes but the individual students who are the focus of the timetable planning. Since all students can select their courses individually, they have their own personal timetable.  

Course optimisation calculates clusters (lines) of lessons which can take place simultaneously. These clusters are then the basis of the algorithm calculating the timetable.  

The ‘Student timetable’ module is a scaled-down version of the Course planning module. This module is meant for school systems in which students have limited optional choices and relatively many compulsory courses.

With the ‘Course-student overview’ you can assign students to single courses and the optimisation calculates which optional courses can take place at the same time without students ending up with too many NTPs (non-teaching periods).

Multi-week timetable

Everyday school life does not mean that every week is the same: Some lectures take place every two weeks, others every three weeks. Or the timetable changes the minute the school-leaving exams are completed and certain classes graduate from school. All of these time-related irregularities can be managed by the “Multi-week timetable” module.

Lesson planning and value calculation

The “Lesson planning” module supports you even before real work scheduling has started – in planning the deployment of teachers. The (contractual) target periods of the teachers are always compared to the currently scheduled actual periods. The “Value calculation” module answers all your questions regarding any substitutions held in the previous month or even in the past year at a glance. Only a few steps are necessary to access interesting and helpful statistic data.

Substitution planning

Which colleagues are available for substitutions if a teacher falls ill? Are there any standby teachers? Is it possible to shift a later lesson to be held earlier? The “Substitution planning” module provides you with solution proposals with just the click of a button.

Multiuser

Several persons, e.g. timetable scheduler and substitution planners, want to work with the same set of data at the same time. This is very often a must for bigger educational institutions and is made possible by Untis’ “MultiUser” module.

Calendar and full year planning

Work with real yearly periods. Yearly periods can be scheduled every week at different positions, which is not the case with weekly periods.

Course scheduling

Since all students can choose their courses individually, all students have their own individual timetable. The Course scheduling module also shows you which optional courses can be held at the same time so that as few non-teaching periods as possible are created for the students.
