Course rating website designed and optimized for Drexel students
As a student at a university or college, one of the most important abilities given to the student is being able to select the courses they want to take with the professor they wish to learn from. To accompany these decisions, various sites such as “Ratemyprofessor” and “Koofers” provide feedback from students who have taken courses with a certain professor and allow students to make an educated decision on whether they want to take the course.
These sites have one important feature that they lack - the ability for students to make their reviews private or public. Students may wish to provide feedback for professors that they normally wouldn’t want other students viewing. Therefore, that might discourage them from providing their valuable feedback. Drexel has their own proprietary software for providing feedback on a course, named AEFIS. However, this system is lacking in many departments and is not intended for student use.
Our solution, Dragon Course Review, is a compromise between sites like Ratemyprofessor and Drexel’s AEFIS. We aim to provide a solution for Drexel’s AEFIS that allows students to provide feedback on a course and the professor teaching it while maintaining the confidentiality of the student as well as providing valuable analytics for the professor to use in the future. This way, it provides a solution that is mutually beneficial to both parties and would be available locally, much like the reviews of co-ops from students on the SCDC branch of DrexelOne.
