Is it possible for RIO Education to support a flexible non-Term based educational environment, where academic Programs and Courses can start and stop on numerous schedules which are not related to the typical Term/semester calendar?
A possible method would be to use a single Term to act as a long running Term (e.g. yearly basis). All Course Offerings and Sessions will have to be linked to the long running Term. From there, one can manage the opening of Course Offerings and Sessions as usual.
If you are using the Student Enrollment Wizard within the student community, the PE Pathway will have to link to the long running Term so that students can view the available Course Offerings and Sessions.
Note: It is recommended to use a new Term every year to reduce the chances of data skewing (possible when you have more than 10,000 records).
