Maintaining learning areas

Learning areas are essentially the academic and non-academic departments or faculties within your organisation. Subjects are grouped into learning areas to give department heads an easy overview of their classes, staff and students.

For instance English classes such as '7ENGA' or '8ENGC' would be placed within learning area code 'ENGLISH', as show in the diagram below.
