Abstract

A program is described which generates a schedule in the form of a month-at-a-glance calendar from data base records containing schedule information. This program solves the problem of having to search through each record in a data base report to build a calendar by hand by analyzing the various data base fields. The schedule for all IBM Technical Education classes, which are delivered via Interactive Satellite Education Network (ISEN), is kept in a data base accessible to all ISEN sites. These sites then use the scheduling program called QISEN to perform queries against the class schedule in that data base and display and print various schedules of classes. There are four studios from which ISEN classes can be broadcast via satellite.
