At the start of the first semester the TU Delft started using a new system for all timetables. From the schedulers point of view this system was a big improvement, but unfortunately the interface for students (http://timetables.tudelft.nl/) lacked some features students would like to have. Back in October i started working on an alternative interface system together with Maarten van der Beek, Marco Krikke and Mike Noordermeer. Our target was to make a system that would work intuitive, integrate with blackboard and save preferences for later visits. Furthermore exporting to digital calendars was a big must-have. Yesterday we started doing the final tests on the system, we are still looking for testers. Send us a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Meanwhile here is an overview of the new interface i would like to share with you. The first time you log in to blackboard you will notice the new My Timetable module: Clicking on the link will take you to the main screen: By clicking add courses you will get some options to add courses to your schedule: It is also possible to add courses based on your Blackboard enrollments: Now the main view will show your schedule: Clicking on a course will provide you with all the details: Clicking on agenda view will give a list of all your lectures for the next month: Furthermore it is possible to export your schedule to some useful formats: The portal module will always display the first 5 upcoming activities: Right now we are in the process of making the last adjustments, so please share your thoughts by leaving a comment or sending us an e-mail. Also do let us know if you want to help testing the system.
