Training

Learn from the experts at our training days

Edval’s training sessions are designed to introduce new users to our software. The sessions are part demonstration and part hands-on activities, with lots of Q&A time with the trainers. Morning tea and lunch are provided at all sessions.

Training Days

It is recommended that schools send at least two people to the three training days: D1, D2 and D3.

Timetabling Sessions

D1 Training

This is the first introduction to the Edval timetable software, and covers data entry, as well as a broad understanding of the software.

D2 Training

Prerequisite: D1 This is the second day of basic training in the Edval timetable software.

Playground duties

Participants will not be allowed to enrol in subsequent days until they have completed the necessary prerequisite training.

D3 Training

Prerequisite: D1 and D2 This is the third day of basic training in the Edval timetable software. It covers most of the tools and techniques that you will need when constructing a timetable automatically in Edval.

Checking for problems before you start

Creating a matrix type grid

Adding your years one at a time

Modifications that solve difficult problems

Splitting classes to balance loads

It is expected that participants will bring their own school file with them. This file should be at ‘Champagne bottle’ stage; or in the final stages leading up to this where problems exist that you would like help in solving.

This is a day with an Edval consultant where you can have your questions answered and help with your own school file.

This day may cover advanced timetable construction techniques and advanced fault finding in timetable requirements. It is not part of the basic three day course, but is charged at the same rates, that is, $495 + GST.

Schools on the full support package may be able to send trainees to this course at no additional charge, but this is explicitly by negotiation with Edval, and provided there is room in the course.

This is an online video course open to teachers whose schools are partners with Aurora College. It outlines what is required to prepare your timetable file, and ensures that you download all the information files from Aurora College as well as the csv files for the timetable requirements (Class data) that you will need. This course takes about 3 hours and can be done in small time slots whenever it suits you.
