Students attendance dashboard

Status: Available

We aim at implementing a dashboard that allows tracking students attendance in lectures and labs. The web-app consists of 3 different profiles: Module admin, teaching staff and student. The web application has the minimum following list of features:

(1) A module admin can create a module and upload a list of students
(2) The module admin can also add teaching staff to the module.
(3) Admin and other teaching staff can register students attendance by clicking on a button on the dashboard.
(4) The dashboard displays statistics about students attendance by week/term/module.
(5) Students can log in to the dashboard and display their attendance statistics by week/term/module

A web-based students projects management system


As part of their degree, UCL-CS students are required to work on a programming project. Projects are proposed by different clients including external companies such as Microsoft, Google, the NHS, etc, but also by internal research groups.
We intend to build a webapp that can automatically: (1) Accept projects submissions by clients (2) Allow students to search for projects by keywords, client name, etc and then register their interests to work on a specific project (3) Allow projects to be automatically allocated to students based on their research interests and search history

Digital Clerk


UCL-CS is introducing a new mentoring system that allows 3rd year students to support their mates in their studies. In addition to students mentors, other staff members such as lecturers and teaching assistants are also involved in answering students questions and providing guidance during office hours. This project aims at implementing a web application that allows students to register their support request and provide a minimum of information regarding their request so they are directed to the right person. The web application has the minimum following list of features:

(1) Students monitor office hour usage remotely and come only when staff members are available
(2) Students are asked to formulate their questions before asking for help, saving time for staff members.
(3) Interaction timers warn staff members when interactions become too long, so they can make the most efficient use of their time.
(4) The interface encourages staff members to help the same students again, eliminating time spent understanding students' work.
(5) Collect data in order to gain valuable insight
