OASIS Scheduling Software

OASIS is a web-based course lottery, scheduling, and administration system designed for the unique needs of health science and professional schools. OASIS gives administrators, students, and faculty 24/7 access to student, course, and schedule information.  Students become actively involved via the web in building and maintaining their lottery selections and schedules, completing course and faculty evaluations, and verifying their records and activities. Program and department administrators are able to configure and manage courses, distribute notices, and verify across departments if prerequisites and other requirements have been met.  OASIS directors manage a scheduling process that becomes more efficient than ever before.

COURSE Lottery IN oasis

The OASIS course lottery system replaces first-come, first-served scheduling. Students have multiple days or weeks to build their lottery selections list. They prioritize their selections, putting the courses they are most interested in at the top of the list and those that they are less interested in - or can be flexible about start dates and locations - at the bottom of the list. When the lottery begins, the students are randomized and each student is given one course from his or her selections list. This process continues until all the selections have been attempted. Randomizing students each time a course is placed helps remove the first-come, first-served bias. While results vary, typically 80+% of the courses placed are the students' first choice and 90+% are the students' first or second choice.
