Edit Academic Events
Edit Event Packages
Evaluate Teaching Workload
You can create and edit the event offerings of a module in the Module Catalog as well as in the transactions specially designed for editing event offerings (transaction code PIQACADOFFER00) and for editing event offerings for cohorts (transaction code PIQACADOFFER01). Bear in mind that not all functions are available in the business event editing interface of the module catalog. For example, in the module catalog you cannot edit the schedule description. Furthermore, the module catalog does not offer a list display or mass processing functions. However, you must use the module catalog (expert view) when you assign business events to event packages or edit sessions of offering.
A business event offering consists of the following objects:
Business event type (object type D)
Business event (object type E)
Business event with regular schedule (with and without exceptions)
Business event with irregular schedule
Time-independent event (object type EL)
This object type includes the business events that have not yet been scheduled. When you schedule a business event without a schedule, the system changes the object type from EL to E.
Event package (object type SE), consisting of business events and/or time-independent events
Business events and time-independent events are created from business event types. The delivery mode of the business event type (object type D) determines whether the business event type is a business event or time-independent event.
An event offering can consist of individual business events and/or time-independent events, as well as event packages.
You can build event packages from business events and/or time-independent events. They represent the academic events offered within a module. Event packages allow students to book all academic events of a module at once instead of having to book each event individually, and thus offer considerable advantages. You combine business events and time-independent events to event packages for the following reasons:
You can group business events that are held at the same campus and/or have the same instructor. For example, you can combine a lecture and a tutorial to an event package if they are held at the same campus by the same instructor. (They do not have to be held in the same room.) In this way, students can be forced to take the lecture and tutorial together.
Event packages enable you to charge different fees for the same academic event.
You can also use event packages to offer certain academic events only to specific groups of students. To do this, you must assign a rule container to the event package.
On the other hand, if an event offering consists of individual academic events instead of event packages, students are free to choose the business events and time-independent events within a business event type.
You have assigned business event types to the module. The business event type is the blueprint for
the academic event.
