Study Plan Project

The current enrolment system and resources available for planning subjects in flexible degrees is difficult to use and wastes valuable student and university staff time.

Our solution: Put the enrolment system and the ability to plan together in one simple and usable environment that helps visualise the structure of the course.

The planning process! Choose a major (or dont!) and then find more possibilities from there

I designed a working prototype for a ‘Study Planner’ application that would help with the enrolling and planning of subjects at university. Together with a student services team leader at a Victorian university, we surveyed people from all areas of academia to conclude that the experience of enrolling in subjects in a flexible course is tedious and involves a large learning curve.

We constructed a small survey relating to the current enrolment process for Australian Universities. The purpose of the survey was to gather views on the current system, how it could be improved and how people personally work out the structure of their degree. The questions were designed to be answered by several main parties: current or past students, university administration officers and academic staff. The reason we interviewed University staff was that they deal with students who are inquiring about enrolment or having trouble with choosing subjects.

Our application was designed to allow a very simple approach to enrolment, giving the user the ability to easily find out all the subjects that are possible and the planning of a major. This will also reduce the amount of time student services spend explaining the online enrolment process with students. We are still pursuing investment to fully develop and implement this application.

Once the Degree has been chosen, your customisable study plan will appear. You can either choose your major at the beginning (chemistry in this case) or have no major planned and start with a blank slate!

Treehouse iOS Game Development

This game was made through a Treehouse iOS development online course. Space Cat is a simple arcade style game in which the user shoots down enemy mice to protect the moon. In this walkthrough I gained skills in Objective-C programming language and Sprite Kit, a 2D physics engine. My next project after this is to design my own smartphone game.
