Classroom, Event Management, and Resource Scheduling (CEMRS)
The first five schools (Bemidji State University, Northwest Technical College, Minneapolis Technical and Community College, South Central College, and Rochester Community and Technical College) are getting close to implementation. Configuration and training is complete. The final preparations are being done for the system to go live at the five schools. We expect to have the first five live before the end of the year.
We have selected the next eight schools to start the implementation process: Anoka-Ramsey Community College, Inver Hills Community College, Metropolitan State University, Minnesota State University, Mankato, Normandale Community College, North Hennepin Community College, Saint Paul College, and Winona State University. A kickoff meeting is planned for November 8. A four month timeline has been developed for the remaining colleges and universities. See the EMS Campus Rollout List on the link below.
A contingent of 14 people from across the MnSCU system attended the annual EMS Conference in Denver on October 1st through the 3rd. Over 55 sessions were held during the 3 day event. A lot of good information was shared by Dean Evans and Associates, as well as users of EMS products. It was a great opportunity for the MnSCU attendees to get to meet many of the DEA employees working to implement EMS Campus across the MnSCU system.
An update on the CEMRS project was given at the ASA Conference on October 26. The update gave background on the project, outlined high level product features, systemwide reporting, and reviewed the implementation plan. Attendees were satisfied with the update.
Work has started on systemwide reporting. We are currently taking data from the initial five schools and developing systemwide reports. More to come on this exciting effort.
