What does it do?
The ProjectList system is an online project and dissertation allocation system. It is designed to help manage the process of academics writing final year or postgraduate projects, and the students viewing and selecting them.
Why use it?
Managing a list of projects, and their allocation to students, can be problematic. Manual solutions frequently involve multiple documents and spreadsheets, flurries of emails, and lots of fiddly details to keep track of. The ProjectList system aims to simplify the process, bring everything together in a single place, and as its an online system, it can be accessed by academics and students at any time or place.
Major features and advantages
- Flexible project forms
Each department's project lists can be tailored to feature the fields you require.
- Monitor academic quotas
Ensure each academic has produced, and been allocated, the right number of projects. By reporting on both UG and PG, you can check no individual is being overloaded, or that everyone is pulling their weight.
- Private Deal projects
Students who have their own project proposal suggestions can approach an academic and have their idea vetted and approved for allocation.
- Flexible allocation options
You can choose whether students shortlist their preferred projects, or whether they should approach the sponsoring academics directly to ask for allocation.
- Comprehensive reporting
ProjectList contains many reports on everything from academic loading to project popularity, to student shortlist success - and you can always request new reports to meet your department's specific needs.
To begin using ProjectList your department needs to register so we can set up a customised area for you. Please contact Paul Newman for more details.
