Timetabling and Room Booking

About the project

Student and staff feedback identified a need for an improved timetabling system, our timetables used to be hard to understand, slow to update, and make ineffective use of the facilities that the University had to offer. The Timetabling and Room Booking project introduced a new way of working and brought in a new system for both staff and students to improve the learning and teaching experience at the University of Wolverhampton.

The aim of the project

The project aims to implement a new system that provides personal timetables for both students and staff; allowing a timetable to be built around the individual, rather than the courses. The project aims to improve communication to students of any timetable changes, as well as release timetables at an earlier point in the academic year to aid forward planning. In addition, a new online self-service room booking system will see a reduction in both staff intervention and approval times, allowing students and staff to make better use of avaiable University spaces.
