Built around a calendar core, Leo delivers a personalized schedule to each user – so students only see their own small group events, lab sessions and lectures, not every event in every course. Likewise, faculty can filter the calendar to see only the events where they are instructors. Students can also quickly see whether events are mandatory, the location and materials, even whether there’s a particular dress code — all from a single screen. Leo also offers iCal feeds, so users get real-time updates to calendars on their personal devices, keeping them informed and on top of everything they need to do.
Other tools may talk about curriculum mapping, but they only map to your assessments or your content. What about the rest of your curriculum? Only Leo lets you map every session in every course — didactic or clinical. With Leo, you can also map themes across courses, as well as diagnoses and procedures for patient encounter logs. And the mapping function in Leo makes it easy for faculty to prove how their teaching supports your program objectives.
Leo’s Insights Dashboard aggregates all your curricular data into actionable information that can power decisions about your students, and your faculty and your program. Stay accreditation-ready always with real-time information on the most critical elements of your program. Think curriculum mapping, faculty workload, countdowns to important events, recent instructional effort, completion of evaluations … right at your fingertips.
With Leo, you can easily evaluate courses, students and faculty (including clinical assessments) at any time, either scheduled in advance or generated on-demand. Leo also supports formative assessments, peer evaluations, self-reflection, and more. Of course, no assessment is complete without providing useful and timely feedback. Students can access their evaluation results in their personalized Academic Portrait directly in Leo, giving them the opportunity to learn from faculty feedback on their performance. Also, did we mention completing assigned or on-demand student evaluations is as easy for faculty as opening an email?
Only Leo can show you the Academic Portrait®, a comprehensive, longitudinal view of student performance including courses, grades, attendance, evaluations, notes, portfolios, custom demographics and more. Faculty advisors, students and administrators can upload, organize and export documents and materials related to the student’s performance. The Academic Portrait also greatly facilitates the authoring of MSPEs.
Leo’s clerkship lottery system allows users to rank-order their preferences from a defined list of courses. The system then automatically allocates space in the courses based on the student’s rank-order, randomly selecting from the pool of equal rank-orders in the case of over-subscription. Our lottery module also has a first-come, first-serve option to augment the rank-order functionality. Students will see both the signup sheets and lotteries in the reminder window each time they log in to the system for ease of access.
Leo knows how to measure and calculate faculty contribution based on class time, prep time and other parameters to generate a report that can be run in real-time, at any time. Faculty can be assigned different roles and disciplines on a per-session basis. FCT reports from Leo can show totals by course, event type, academic year, department, division, individual, role, discipline and other categories to help you understand the actual cost of delivering your curriculum.
