Computer Science Course Collaborations
The partnerships with the Department of Computer Science and their students were a major part of the grants activities.
- Three Students from the fall 2012 through spring 2013 CS 492 class developed the “Citation” module for MINRVA as their class project. The Citation module has successfully integrated into both the Android and iOS versions of MINRVA. Michael Woodley instructed the class.
- Eight Students from the spring 2013 CS 428 students developed “I-Wonder” a web based system that allowed students to chat with libraries on-line. The I-Wonder software was successfully incorporated into the University Library’s “Ask a Librarian” system in 2014. Professor Danny Dig instructed the sprint CS 428 class.
- Three Students from the fall 2013 through spring 2014 CS class prototyped the “Study Buddy” module for MINRVA. The module allows student to initiate and join impromptu study sessions. Michael Woodley instructed the class.
- Six students from the Department of Computer Science participated in the grant’s fall 2013 Code Camp. Professor Leonard Pitt, Director of Undergraduate Programs for the Department of Computer Science, was instrumental in promoting the event by providing the space to have the Code Camp.
- Nikoli Dryden, Treasurer of the ACM chapter, arranged for communication of the grant’s fall 2013 Code Camp to members of the chapter. Volunteers from the ACM chapter also helped set up the Code Camp.
