Activity Management

ASIS system supports activity management in three different contexts:

  1. Course: This activity type is managed by a course teacher for a particular course. 
  2. Level: This activity type is managed by a level teacher (Class Teacher) for activities not related to any specific course or programme.
  3. Programme: In schools where there are programme teachers (or multiple streams of students per level/class), then this might be used instead of the level activity.

Accessing the activity menu

How you access the activity menu depends on whether you are a course teacher, a class/level teacher, or a programme teacher.

For Level/Class Teacher from the Level Gateway of the Selected Level, click on the Activities menu item to open the Activities Menu.
