The Visual Classroom Scheduler uses colorful graphics to make timetabling easier.
Classroom events and activities are shown as colored rectangles over a weekly grid.
The grid can show activities for "All Weeks" together or those on any particular week.
No setup time is needed - start entering classes immediately and add more details later.
Don't worry about suitable times or allocations - move classes about with the mouse - later.
VCS is designed to produce a simpler, faster and better result than any other system.
