What does Flightpath do for an Advisor?
Advisors can log into FlightPath, and then choose a student to advise electroncically. The courses a student has successfully completed appear with maroon check marks beside them, and courses they have left to take appear with blank check boxes beside them. To advise a student to take a course is simply to check that checkbox. Groups of courses have clickable icons where you can choose a course within the group. Advisors can also leave text comments discussing their advising sessions.
The "What-If" feature is useful for advisors too; if a student's major hasn't yet changed, but a student still wants or needs to be advised in a major other than the one s/he is currently assigned, then the advisor can pull up that student in the "new" major through What-If and advise him or her that way. Try it out and see.
