CS Information Session Reservation
The CS Information Session Reservation project is an effort to assist recruiting procedures for the Computer Science department at Virginia Tech. The department has an ambassador program that is responsible for hosting information sessions for prospective students and their families when they visit campus. The main goals of this project are to provide individuals with a means of signing up for information sessions online, and to automate behind the scenes processing for the ambassador program.
Our clients for this project are the leads of the ambassador program for the CS department, Ruth Labbe Hale and Debbie Zier. After meeting with them multiple times, we came up with a list of requirements and proposed deliverables for the project design. Our clients emphasized the desire to have the manual steps they complete on a day to day basis automated. Their current process heavily utilizes common Google Suite applications such as Gmail, Google Sheets, and Google Calendar. We incorporated these applications into our design to facilitate the transition to the new system.
