The Idea Behind This Theme
We wanted to build something awesome for schools, faculty members, and students that be used in such a way that benefits everyone. Teachers can add/update their own courses and provide students with up to date information regarding homework, study guides, notes, and a tentative schedule based on a specific course section. Students can get course information, purchase required reading materials, and check to see if they missed anything in class. Finally, admins can oversee the flow of information, and have the ability to add, edit, assign, and delete course information and users.

Managing Faculty Members
Polytechnic comes fully integrated with a new user role specifically built for educational institutions. We’re calling this new WordPress user/role « Faculty ». This Faculty role provides faculty members with the ability to add, edit, and update their own courses and course information. This role is similar to the « Author » role native to WordPress, with a few added tools and abilities to provide your faculty members with the right amount of rights. This role also allows users assigned to this role to edit their own personal information (ie. bio, photo, contact info, etc.).
Managing Courses & Catalogs
Adding a new course is easy, and can be assigned to any user. If that user has been assigned the role of Faculty, they will have their own login and dedicated WordPress dashboard. This dashboard will only include the necessary information for this user role (ie. courses). Next, this user can navigate to Courses to see all of the courses currently assigned to them. They can open any one of these to begin updating/editing the course information and course content (ie. homework, study guides, etc.)
