Booker25 & Salesforce Education Data Architecture

Introduction

Booker25 is 100% Salesforce Education Data Architecture (EDA) Compliant. This means that you can use Booker25 on top of EDA, and even extend EDA functionality! Think of using the Booker25 Scheduler for scheduling actual classroom sessions, based on Course OfferingsCourse Offering Schedules and Course Connections for example.

Integration

How you want to do this exactly will largely depend on the actual requirements and already existing implementation, but in essence you can feed information from Course OfferingsCourse Offering Schedules and Course Connections into the Booker25 Reservation Template object. This object is similar to Course Offering Schedules and Time Blocks, in the way that it contains abstract information regarding when courses take place, where they take place (which classroom / faculty), who teaches them and which students are enrolled for each course.


This information can the be used by the Booker25 Scheduler to generate actual classroom sessions in the Booker25 Reservation and Reservation Contact objects. Those sessions will then be linked to classrooms (Booker25 Resource) and teachers (Booker25 Staff), making them visible on each respective calendar. In turn, those sessions can then be used to interact with students (Chatter), upload homework (Salesforce Files) and mark student attendance (Attendance Event) for example.

Example

The following video shows an example of how a University Scheduler can use Booker25 to schedule EDA Course Offerings into actual classroom session with Booker25, and create a 360º Student and Teacher view:
