The current SMS student and staff experience is fragmented across systems and user interface styles. Banner SMS will deliver a coherent human centred design philosophy, better able to deliver richer functionality, consistently, and across multiple platforms (phone, tablet, desktop etc.).
Here's a preview of what improvements a student can experience with Banner's function for curriculum management.
Ellucian Degree Works™ is the curriculum management function that would let us do degree audits, transfer articulations, and student planning solution. Through this module, a student can see all the units that they have completed and still need to complete. They can also use it to forecast how much longer their studies will take if they drop a unit or take an extra unit during Summer.
The new Student Management System will also offer the following process areas:
Applications to Graduate
Transfer Equivalency Self Service (TESS)
automatically asses course completion and approval
students can be notified & invited to graduate in a simpler process
course changes will all be reflected in students' study plans
increased self service reducing staff administrative intervention
students can view and track their own academic progress
create "what if" plans for changing your course
improved recognition of Prior Learning process
get a "quote" of what you can be elligible for at a certain course in Western
