MMS documentation

The Module Management System (MMS) is an online component which assists in the managing and administrating of modules, and to ensure compliance with various Institutional and Governmental regulations.

Where possible MMS matches the University structure and is broken up into Schools and units, with each school containing modules. Modules can have groups, tools, staff and students. There are three types of modules in MMS with the vast majority being of the 'standard' type which correspond directly to taught modules. MMS also has Postgraduate Research modules which are used for administrating all research students in a school, and 'Pseudo' or 'meta' modules that do not import student lists directly from Registry but can be used either as 'staff only' modules or to import students from other modules already setup in MMS.

As MMS modules and tools can be used in a range of ways depending on configuration and the roles that a user may have, the guides have been tailored to specific user roles  to ensure they are as useful as possible. The Module Management System (MMS) is used throughout the University of St Andrews by many different types of users. Please click the links below to view the appropriate guide:
