Full Sail requires instructors to take certain courses each year. On November 8th I attended a course on Campus Vue which is Full Sail's main database for student records. The students "Permanent Record" as it were. The tools included in the Campus Vue system are used by diverse Full Sail departments including Admissions, Academic Success, Financial Aid, and Education. In this session, attendees were taught how to utilize Campus Vue in order to find and record pertinent student-related information. Basic navigation of the application was covered, as well as how to use the Contact Manager feature which included how to document the Course Director’s Award, Advanced Achievement Nominations and MIA policy/procedure. All the attendees had their laptops open and the program open. As a Studio Artist, I couldn't access Campus View, so I sketched.
It was intriguing to find out that there have been instances where police have subpoenaed a students records. It was stressed that any notes about a student should only relate facts. For instance writing that, "The student seemed drunk, and had no interest in completing assignments" would be a bad way to write up an entry. Perhaps, "the student seemed disoriented, with red eyes and he or she didn't complete the assignment." Dragnet style "Just the facts mam" is the way to go.
