Here are a few of the projects that we're currently working on:
Molloy Life App
DIGICAP Advisement App
Do you need to take a prerequisite for Calculus III to graduate on time? Are you on pace with your general education or major requirements? If you were to change your major, how many more credits do you need? What classes are available this semester, and how would taking them impact your progress? Do you need a given course and do you have its prerequisites? For a few majors, the DIGICAP Advisement App will help answer these questions and more. You can explore the requirements you still need based on your course history, major, and planned courses for this semester. As you make changes to your schedule or major, you will see the impact in real time. But we have big plans for this app. Can it learn which courses are best for you to take? NOTE: The Discussion Information Guide In Charting Academic Progress (DIGICAP) app is just that. It's meant to help you make decisions and generate discussion about possible obstacles to graduating on time in consultation with your advisor. It is not meant to replace advising nor tell you what you need to take with certainty. It also isn't tied into the database yet so the advice may not be 100% accurate. See the project in its current state on https://github.com/jschanker/molloy-advising-web-application.
The ambitious goal for this project is to allow people to solve problems in their own ways and in their own languages and then see how their procedures are translated to computer instructions. By removing the initial obstacles to programming, the hope is that Text2Code can allow people to focus on the solving of problems and see what can be achieved by a computer before they need to give precise instructions in the computer's language. By seeing the translations of their ideas in code, novice programmers will (hopefully) see how computers solve problems and will eventually learn how to write a program in an actual computer language.
