Looking for an idea for the Hackathon, we looked at UIPath and considered what could be automated.
What it does
It draws grades off of Blackboard and throws it in an Excel file. So far.
How we built it
Mostly through drafts and planning, trial and error when that inevitably failed, and online tutorials. And some caffeine.
Challenges we ran into
As first time users of UIPath, everything. Trying to efficiently extract data was difficult, so we did it inefficiently.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
It works sometimes.
What we learned
We're not good at UIPath, but it looks like it could be powerful in the right hands.
What's next for Course Data Automation
Making it work.
