Seeking recommendations on course scheduling software (not registration software).

Posted on February 2nd, 2012 by Anne Cardale, OLLI National Resource Center

Katy Crapo, OLLI at University of Georgia, Asks OLLI:

OLLI@UGA is looking for software to assist its Curriculum Committee with course scheduling. We do not need registration software. We already have that. However, what we do need is a way to “plug in” our courses and move them around. Up to this point, the Chair of the Curriculum Committee is the sole person responsible for this, and she does all this work manually. We want an application that would centralize information in such a way that a number of people could assist in the class scheduling. Does anyone have any recommendations for us?
