LT11: Reminding the dog when to eat your homework
DCU’s Assignment Notification system integrates our VLE, Loop with the student’s GCal account to provide a fully user centric, mobile notification system.
The project driver was overwhelming demand from students. In October 2015 Information Systems & Services carried out two surveys of students with an Assignment Notification system favoured over all other student developments by over 75%.
In conjunction with the Student Union a follow up focus group of class reps confirmed the initial findings and strongly favoured GCal as the preferred delivery format.
Initial development was complete in May followed by pilots with a full roll out in September.
