Course Organization - tutorial for Course Coordinators

Flowing points are describing main steps for organizing course using Shedra:

  1. Preparation. Fill in course data. At this state ('preparation') course is not visible publicly. Use early-bird payment discount to atract early registrations and cash flow.
  2. In case of doubts, request corresponding Educational Program Manager assitence (or instructor) to review all data to be sure that is correct and complete.
  3. Registration. Once date, venue are confirmed and rest of the course data is complete, status of the course should be changed to 'Registration'. Now course will become visible to the public and students can start register to it.
  4. Course publicity campaign should start inmediately. Spread the news with the link of the course page. Send email to Norbunet, Melong, your local Ling/Gar members, advertise (open courses) on Facebook etc
  5. Enrolement. Students at free courses are enroled automatically when they register
  6. When course requires payment, when it arrives each payment status has to be updated by Course Coordinator. This will trigger student enrollment and therefore student becomes course 'participant'. For payments done via Paypal Card payment, whole process is automatic and do not require any Course Coordinator intervention. Status of payments can be followed in 'Payments' tab, and situation of all enrolled participants can be seen in "Participants".
  7. All course expenses can be filled in 'finances' tab
  8. Course finances provide insight to financial performance of the course showing total income, expenses and revenue etc
  9. When course actually happens enters 'in process' state, after it finish enters 'finished' state. In both cases it's not posible to register to it anymore.
  10. Collect survey (to be developed) from course participants, few days after the course finish, to mesure their satifaction and get valuable feedback alowing further improvements.
