Could checking your timetable be made much easier?
Vellore Institute of Technology has been following the FFCS mode of registration at their college. FFCS system allows students to register for courses with the flexibility of choosing their faculty and class timings. Students get an opportunity to choose their faculty members and decide on the timings according to their wish. Thus every student’s timetable is different and depends on the registration they do for every semester. This system also allows for an ‘add and drop’ feature where students can opt to change their professors within a week if they feel so. The system provides a chance for students to register under faculties whom they feel comfortable with.
Quake is a mobile application that allows students to manage their class timings and schedules from their phones. The application was initially developed for Android platform and is in active development for Windows Phone OS, iOS and Blackberry. The application was designed and developed by first-year BTech students of VIT Chennai, Raj Abishek and Sailesh Dev under the guidance of Prof. Sathis Kumar.
The application is a boon to students challenged by conflicting priorities to schedule their timing for the course commitments. Quake is a mobile application that retrieves information about students’ timetable based on his roll number and date of birth from VIT’s server and stores it locally so that a student can view his timetable at any time.
