DWF141650 - Scribing........Lessons Learned We did our initial scribing before we fully understood Scribe, Degree Works, and how everything worked together. Once we understood how things worked we realized that: 1. Label numbers were very important and some thought needed to go into them. 2. We were originally told that splitting credit wasn't possible....CAPP did it and folks were not going to accept that we couldn't split credits. So we had to figure how to make that work. 3. We split all of our programs requirements into GEN ED requirements and major requirement blocks. 60 Minutes DWF Presentation Cathy Tessier
