New form for schedule documentation

Replacement of Kopps’ schedule documentation (EKS) is a project that began in the spring of 2021, intending to implementing a new form for schedule documentation. The form was intended to be used for courses given in the autumn semester of 2022, but the timetable has been revised to the autumn semester of 2024.

Project goal

When work begins submitting course schedules for Autumn 2022, the goal is to do this in a new, digital format.

22 February 2022

The timetable is postponed one year ahead

At the steering group meeting on 22 February 2022, a revised timetable for the project was decided. The reason is that functionality and usability for managing schedule data in TimeEdit Preferences is not yet sufficiently developed for KTH's needs. 

This means that the introduction is planned for courses given to HT24.

Impact target

  • The user perspective. It will be easier to submit and retrieve information before scheduling a course.
  • Increased automated schedule documentation.
  • Less risk of handling errors.
  • Reduced management costs with standard systems.

Timetable

Week 44–03 2023: User materials are available, and workshops are provided.

Week 47 2023: The window for schedule submission in Kopps closes. The new form is available and should be used.

Background

Current system support for schedule documentation can be found in the Course and Programming tool, Kopps. Increased digitalization of education at KTH defines new demands for features unavailable in Kopps, which is based on older technology. KTH is currently changing the system for submission of schedule documents.

TimeEdit, the supplier of the schedule system, has developed a module known as TE Preferences for handling schedule requests. KTH is actively involved in development the new system to replace what is currently available in Kopps.

Scope

The projects “Replace Kopps’ schedule documentation” and “Automated flow for exam planning” will have significant technical interdependence, and so these projects need to work together closely. The “Automated flow” can be introduced when all project goals for a new schedule are met.

Limitations

The project will not be able to meet the following needs, but it will take them into account: Ordering resources/support for teaching and examinations, such as support when ordering software for teaching purposes, system support needed during examinations (e.g. Kaltura, Möbius) and booking of remote lab places/halls.

Project organization

The project is being conducted within the StudAdm administrative object.
