A program’s curriculum is one of the most crucial elements for its success. First, it establishes what the program will cover by defining goals and objectives. Then, these objectives are mapped onto courses or even individual sessions. This process, when done well, ensures that students graduating from the program have been taught all of the competencies that the program sets out to endue in its graduates. The curriculum may be mapped out at the session level or course level, depending on the school’s desired balance of detail and time commitment. eCurriculum offers flexibility to meet program-specific needs; not only does the application accommodate mapping at multiple levels, but customization options are available.
In a system such as eMedley that has thousands of users, security is a top priority. Particularly when working with sensitive student information, it is crucial that each user has the appropriate security level within the system. This is generally managed in relation to both data (what data can the user access) and function (what is the user able to do with the data or system). Access to functions is managed by “access levels” while access to data is managed by “permissions”; each person’s access level and permissions then dictate what they can see and do in the system.
While this structure may seem straightforward, it can get quite complicated, particularly when managing thousands of users, interfaces, and functions (not even to mention the amount of data in the system). Thankfully, eMedley has a team of expert software engineers behind it, meaning that all of this complexity is well-managed. To read more about security access to system data and functions, click here.
