Skagit Valley College Educational Planning Tool

Faculty and students needed a way to plan out the degree path of a student. The faculty and counselors needed to be able to track the student’s progress over the time they are attending SVC.

My role in this project was to create a responsive modern view to allow the faculty or student to create a “Degree Plan” using live data from our catalog of classes and student records.

Integrated student and class data from legacy systems using a custom built api to convert the data between modern display style and the legacy storage style.

Needed to overcome obstacles related to the formatting of the legacy data such as converting dates and times into human readable text. Also creating conversion algorithms to deal with displaying legible content instead of the codes that the data is stored in.

allow the faculty counselor and mentors to track the student progress over the life of the plan.
