Instruction Mode and Room Assignment

We rely on Instruction Mode to determine whether or not courses are in need of a room. It would be really handy to be able to filter by instruction mode to allow us to schedule only those courses that are in need of rooms. Thank you!



  • Follow up question: are you a Banner school? If so, what field(s) are you using to designate instruction mode? Thanks!

  • We are a PeopleSoft school, and the field name is INSTRUCTION_MODE on the CLASS_TBL table. Thank you!

  • Thanks! In Banner we use "Instructional Method" at the section level and I'm always curious how fields in SIS translate into Astra's products since we all use different nomenclature. This is super helpful!

  • We area Banner SIS client and several years ago expanded usage of SSASECT "Instruction Method" and had this added to Spoke file for Import Jobs mapped to "Delivery Method" in Astra Schedule ... unfortunately this field is not available in Section List but can be viewed in Section Detail ... such "ONLI" Online sections are assigned to N/A building and N/A room ... I submitted Product Feedback for Delivery Method to be added to Room Assignment Optimizer¬†

    Best regards, Jason

  • It would be really nice if we could simply make a scheduling preference for all "ONLI" delivery method sections in Astra to be placed in N/A bldg + N/A room ... academic schedulers slip a few times per term ... always need to check before Optimizing¬†¬†
