CurricUNET to Banner Interface

Ahsen Baig, Programmer / Analyst, College of the Sequoias  &  Joni Jorda, Chair, Curriculum Committee, College of the Sequoias  &  Lee McDonald, Applications Manager, College of the Sequoias

COS has developed a system for downloading pending and approved curriculum from CurricUNET and updating the Banner course catalog. This eliminates the need to manually re-enter courses that have been approved into Banner, avoiding creating typos and other errors. The user can review the differences between what is currently in Banner and what is coming from CurricUNET. If there are no issues with the change, a click of an Update button will cause the creating or update of all the appropriate catalog table for the course for the effective term. We have had to make changes in the CurricUNET screens to make some of the Banner catalog requirements more apparent to curriculum developers.

Implementing BOG Waivers as Exemptions

Bob Hughes, Applications Support Manager, North Orange County CCD

Prior to Summer 2011, the North Orange County Community College District processed BOG Waivers like any other Financial Aid award. While it worked, it wasn't ideal as students would not see their fees offset until after a nightly disbursement process ran, resulting in phone calls, over payments and unpaid balances. Beginning in Summer 2011, we implemented the Cal B BOG Waiver as Exemption functionality. This presentation will show how we set it up, benefits, and lessons learned in the implementation.

FHDA developed a very easy to use approach to the Banner INB form access to student information. The idea is to grant different levels of access to different classified and administrative staff to the necessary student records, in the mean time considering all necessary security precautions (FERPA, SSN . . . etc). This session will show you the original development concept, development methodology and a demonstration of the end product.

Workflow Prototyping

Bill Pearce, Principal Consultant, Strata Information Group

Development of a Workflow, especially involving a Workflow database trigger, can be difficult and cumbersome at times. Using standard techniques, end users can't evaluate the outcome of a workflow until the workflow is activated, and changes to an activated workflow require a lot of steps to de-activate, change, and re-activate the workflow. This session will describe a technique to prototype a workflow, which can then be reviewed with the end user, and easily modified until it is approved. The session will also discuss techniques of utilizing HTML in workflows, as well as discuss several examples of workflows that have been developed by SIG at various sites.
