A learning Event consists of Students and Faculty meeting (physically or online) at a specific location, date, and time. An Event that does meet these criteria should be a Long Event.
Some fields in an Event are required (*). Other fields are optional and may be excluded from the input screen based on how your System Administrators have configured your System. Therefore, some of the fields in the list below may not appear on your screen.
If your Event is part of a linked event then certain fields will be locked, as those fields are controlled by the Linked Event System. These fields will be marked with a red border.
This screen lets you enter a detailed, and potentially very long, description of your Event.
TIP: All the text boxes have a WYSIWYG editor but in the Course Message, the Course Description box, you can also access the following tools as well: Embed video, insert an image or flash and even create a table. For more information on embedding video refer to the article: Embed Video in Course Description.
Enter exact location information, as well as images or maps.
Create custom notes for staff members.
The stats screen can show several types of sets of statistics for the event.
NOTE: The numbers for non-enrolled Users is most likely exaggerated due to the fact that Faculty and Staff, when using Event and Course screens, often use functions that cause the screens to refresh, and each refresh counts as a 'new' visit to the screen.
Non-Student counts refer to all Users who are not enrolled Students in the current Course. Thus, the non-student count may also contain Students who are not enrolled in the current Course or linked to a given Event.
This report is a generic history report that shows activity for a given record type within the System.
Use this screen to cancel an event.
This report shows a list of the Inventory items that are required by the current Event. These Inventory items will only be associated with this location for the duration of the Event. When the Event is over, the Inventory will be returned to stock. Inventory items that are permanent are manage in Location Management.
Fill in the required fields (*) and Submit the entry.
