Instructor Optimization Overview

Instructor Optimization allows an institution to assign instructors to sections in a bulk, optimized process as part of sandbox scheduling. The assignment process can utilize various different factors when determining the best instructor schedule, including instructor availability and section conflicts*, courses they are authorized to teach, cost, quality rating, and load.

Instructors should be scheduled before rooms if you want instructor room preferences (or back-to-back room assignment settings) to impact room assignment. Currently assigned rooms are not considered during instructor assignment. However, room preferences are a factor if instructors are assigned during room assignment. 

The following configuration is required to fully utilize all of the features of instructor optimization:

Instructor Types
Instructor Availability Templates
Courses authorized per instructor
Instructor course quality (optional)
