Course Schedule Optimization

University Technology Innovation of the Year

Augusta Technical College is using SAS Analytics to provide a course schedule optimization which will provide outcome measurements and propose course times and days of the week for student success overall and for each delivery method and subject area. The analysis determines which instructors need additional training/resources based on desired student outcomes. The schedule optimization solution will include cost analysis and a schedule optimization component to provide a course schedule optimized around student outcomes (grades) that considers various constraints such as class size, location, instructor availability, and the technology needed in the classroom.
