Waves in Motion has updated CourseWizard, a tool for managing the professional development process in education, to version 3.5. It requires FileMaker Pro 5.x or higher and is compatible with Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.x.
The customizable staff development and learning management system lets administrators manage courses and staff development programs. What’s more, participants can use simple Web systems to research, track and register for classes. Instructors can update course and attendance information from any Web browser.
As of version 3.5, CourseWizard provides a Web-based view of an entire course catalog. It can be used to publicize such course info as prerequisites, standards, credit hours, course time, instructor biographies, locations and maps. All participants can register on-line and receive e-mail reminders of upcoming courses.
More information, as well as a demo version of CourseWizard 3.5, can be obtained at the Waves in Motion Web site. CourseWizard, along with three days of installation and training, costs $5,995; upgrades from previous versions start at $495.
