Beating the clock or is that Beaten (by) the Clock?

It has been a busy summer further developing the Tutorial Session Report system (TSR) for the SLCC Student Writing Center.  I last wrote about the development of TSR last year.  There have been some remarkable changes this year.  Joe McCormick who is currently a graduate student at Durham University in the UK, deserve a lot of credit for inspiring the changes and in a fair share of the implementation.  Before he left for grad school, for instance, Joe completely redesigned our interface, making it really slick.  I'll write about that soon, as well as the systemic changes I've been working on later.   It is a big write up, I fear, and I'm still in the midst of implementing everything.

One exciting development that I can show you now, however, is our fully integrated appointment system.  A student can make an appointment online, or she can walk up to our kiosk in the Center.  Here are two Vines of the kiosk in development:






After the student makes an appointment, a report is created for her in the TSR system and the tutor can access any time.  That also acts as a queue of sorts for the tutor.  (Not that we want to be beaten by the clock counter to  The Everyday Writing Center.)
