Hi! As a faculty member... does the curricula work with or without the SAP software? Is it better to lecture with the software or can I get by without it?

If I'm part of a member university how many students can I provide access to the software? Are there any limitations?

Also, I'm based in Philadelphia with connections to the 2nd largest university... Can I pick my UCC or will it be assigned to me? I'm open to either one!

Many thanks!

Richard

I use SAP as a tool to help students learn business processes and cross functionality of sharing information throughout the enterprise. Various guest speakers have emphasized to my classes that students should learn the concepts and processes; they will teach them the software. However, using the software helps students see these concepts and processes happen in real time.

I am experimenting this semester with adding a group element. After completing the sales order process individually in Fitter Snacker, I form groups of 3. They role play sales, inventory, and accounting and repeat the activities 3 times in each role. Students acquired a better understanding of the integration and sharing of information in the enterprise system.

Dear Richard,

the curricual works with and without SAP software whereas the idea behind the curricula is to teach the fundamentals of large ERP software (material master record etc). By using SAP software you can show your students what the theory is all about.

The number of students accessing the software depends on the UCC (and the conditions) you are connected to.

Thanks! Your reply answers my question. I appears that the combination of the curricula and the SAP Software is the way to go! I will work with the UCC's on the number of students involved!

Many thanks!

Hi Everyone,

One key intent of this community is to present curriculum resources for lectures of either type - with access to SAP software for the professor and students in classroom and lab environements OR without access to the software.

The former, with SAP software access, requires formal membership in our long-standing University Alliances program (UAP). With this membership, professors receive special access to curriculum elements designed to be dependent on use of SAP software (an of course access to everything in our community).

The latter, without SAP software access, requires simply registration in this new University Alliances community (UAC). This community makes many resources available to professors to integrate into their business and IT-related lectures and projects - including pre-recorded demos, videos, expert and analyst reports, articles, white papers, customer reviews, references, and case studies, etc.

The curren state of the site is like a start-up. There is a lot on offer, but we also expect that there is a lot more out there to grow. We know there are many elements which we can make available to the worldwide community once they are contributed. We are actively approaching professors in our networks now for items.

We would be grateful for anyone that we have not contacted to come forward and offer content of their own, for the UAP members or for the greater UAC.

Thanks and Best Wishes
