Academic scheduling in the 21st century with our new Timetabler application

November 12, 2018, By Liz Priestley

At Scientia, partnership is an important part of our development philosophy.  We create our software with those and for those who will be using it.  Scientia has engaged on the ambitious task of redefining academic scheduling within the 21st century with our new Timetabler application designed exclusively to run on the Syllabus Plus Anywhere platform.

An important part of this partnership model is our reference group.  The reference group comprises of users from around the globe, representing a range of types of institutions and scheduling methodologies.  Scientia collectively discusses development directions and together the reference group and the Scientia product management team shape the direction of our future services and product development.

Within our development of Timetabler, there are now a set of scheduling services that make the core functions that are required for academic scheduling. We have released the Timetabler application with these services to our reference group members to review and provide feedback and recommendations as we continue to grow and enrich the feature sets of this new and exciting service development.

This is a significant milestone in the development of our new market leading, cloud-based services on the Syllabus Plus Anywhere platform.

The reference group feedback and guidance ensure that what we develop will be both functional and performant, ready for consideration by institutions as they consider moving to the Anywhere platform, and the Timetabler application. When you move across will be up to you. AS new scheduling services are added there will be a point where you determine Timetabler is what you need to support your processes to support academic curriculum delivery.

Combined with the reference group engagement, there is an opportunity for all users to be part of the journey to Anywhere. Regular sprint reviews, which share the development that has taken place are available for all to join, please register here.  Your Account Manager would be delighted to speak with you about arranging a review of your requirements to propose a migration plan to Anywhere tailored for you.
