Rpi planner geoffrey_wright_7-22-2011

  1. 1. RPI Planner Update Geoffrey Wright
  2. 2. Reminder: What is RPI Planner?• Course/schedule planning tool, similar in function to RPI Scheduler• RPI Planner helps students generally plan out an entire plan of study during enrollment at RPI o Scheduler which handles only a single semester• Leverages requirements from the CAPP report• Developed by previous RCOS students, primarily Eric Allen
  3. 3. Planned Additions• Flexibility is key (June and July) o Multiple degree program o Number of courses/credits per semester o Number of semesters in the plan• More diversity (July and August) o Current degrees to select from are very limited o Course database is not complete
  4. 4. Original RPI Planner Interface
  5. 5. Current RPI Planner Interface
  6. 6. DEMO
  7. 7. More Additions• Looking at potential features, the two that stand out to me are completing the course database and completing the degree database• Considering the widely different standards for degrees, creating a parser to grab courses from an RPI database or the online catalog seems the more reasonable option• Any other suggestions to make the application more usable or flexible would be appreciated
  8. 8. Remaining Schedule• July 29: Fix any remaining glitches, start course catalog parser• August 5: Course catalog parser, additional flexibility / usability features• August 12: Course catalog parser, additional flexibility / usability features
  9. 9. Questions / Suggestions?
