Web Titles help clarify and avoid confusion and are utilized in several different areas:
- Degree Programs
Web titles appear on the degree program within the tree structure when building both roadmaps and plans:
- Keep web titles consistent, e.g., BA English-History, BA English-Literature, BS Science-Biology, BS Math-Elementary Ed
- No need to change web titles due to date ranging unless required by convention, e.g., 2007 BA English
In the absence of a web title, the uAchieve Planner will use the RTITLE text:
In this case, the RTITLE may provide clearer, more detailed instruction for users.
- Choose either RTITLE or Web Title and stick to a single naming convention. If you choose to use Web Titles, all programs must use them and vice versa if choosing RTITLEs
- If you continue to use RTITLE field, be sure to "clean up" text, check for errors, etc.
The Planner will default to the sub-requirement text, so adding web titles at the sub-requirement level is a good practice–even for those schools considering adding the uAchieve Planner in the future.
To students, the sub-requirement text may not make sense. Enter the web title text (e.g., English Composition I) on the Reference/Other tab of the sub-requirement:
This web title example displays on the roadmap as follows:
- When using sub-requirement text, be sure to check for errors and confusing text
- You can change the sub-requirement text in the uAchieve Planner (on the roadmap), but it may be more time-consuming
- It can help the person charged with building the roadmaps, as well–not only the student
