Select module staff function

No Comments »

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been working on a way to connect staff to their modules in a more structured way than the current free text field.

This should improve ease of use for people using iPaMS – the system integrates with the University’s Ldap system to retrieve a list of Academic staff for the Humanities college, which can then be picked and assigned to roles such as Convenor or Lecturer.

It will also improve the ‘front end’ of iPaMS. For example colleges may want to link modules to (and from) staff profiles on their website or intranet. The staff username is used as the unique identifier, so this could potentially integrate with other systems too.

Below is a screenshot of the new feature in action.

This change is due to be released to the live iPaMS system this week.
