Submitted for Judging
Drupal is a powerful content management system popular among universities.
Examples include Rutgers, Oregon State University, Amherst, Arizona State University, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, and many more.
Instead of creating a brand new website, I've created a module to integrate with existing Drupal university websites, bringing in information about Pearson courses.
Pearson information is updated regularly. On my demonstration site, Pearson content is updated every five minutes.
Using Twilio, students can opt-in for text messaging to their mobile phones:
This solves a major problem for students. Many students are on cell phones consistently, and would benefit from text message reminders.
Students can set goals for a particular class. (Ex. 90% for CS-101)
When new Exams are created, students are alerted, with a custom-tailored message on how to reach their goal.
Professors also have the ability to see how the class is doing at reaching (or not reaching) their goals.
Please see my video (at the bottom) for more details.
Judges have been given a login to my website, which is very important to have.
(Some links allow judges to manipulate course content for any contestant, so logging in is necessary)
I've been told that the login information has been provided to judges. If not, please contact me immediately:
Once logged in, click the Judges link in the upper right menu for a full explanation of my project.
