An Interactive Reservation-Registration System for Continuing Education.
Daniel, Leonard R.
A relatively rapid system for reservation and/or registration of continuing education (noncredit) students at Clayton Junior College, Georgia, is described. The system was developed on a Texas Instruments 990/10 computer system in COBOL, and makes extensive use of a few function keys. System features include provision for reservation and waiting lists, a simple mechanism for reassignment of reserved spaces to waiting students if reserved student fees are not paid on time, easy access to individual student records, and a variety of reports for local system management and external requirements. The main procedure for reservation-registration data entry (REGI) is simple for the terminal operator. An overview is provided of the the operator's data entry activities, including dropping students placed on the file. It is noted that one of the most useful features of REGI is its updating capability. Updating procedures, and inquiring and verifying procedures are explained. Additional procedures for placing students in an active or holding status and for generating a report by course for courses with holding students are briefly described, along with a variety of other procedures to manage student information pertaining to registration.
