What it does
You can select a UNC major – I only had time to load 4 in from our academic worksheets -- add individual classes, or upload a unique course list as a text file -- which makes the app usable for students at other universities. Once uploaded, you can drag classes to other semesters or delete them all together. It’s also mobile friendly!
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
I spent about 3 hours trying to load in local text files – one for each major at Carolina – and I couldn’t get it to accept the files, so I had to make an array in the css page for each major.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am really proud of how I was able to get the file upload to work and that I got the classes to drag from one semester to the next. Overall, I would have never guessed I could have done this in one day, so thank you Pearl Hacks for the motivation!
What I learned
What's next for Plan Carolina
I want to have all the courses put into a JSON file so I can add elements to them like difficulty – which would be cool to crowd source – so that students can balance the difficulty of their semesters.
I just got a domain from Domain.com and set it up, so it might not show up by 11AM, but here is the link: www.plancarolina.com
