Carleton students (and faculty!) have a lot to keep track of. Between emails (oh so many emails), Slack and Discord messages, calendar events, web links, due dates, coursework, work schedules…there's so much data coming at us each and every day.
Data capture is a crucial part of any productivity system — keeping track of all incoming information, and putting it somewhere where we can process it and make sense of it (and then schedule it). If you're familiar with the Getting Things Done system, “capture” is the first part of this process.
Capture without curation is just chaos. It would be nice if we had one location in which to curate all of our incoming information, so that can see more clearly what's coming up and make better decisions about how we spend our limited time and energy.
Having an effective system is not just another toy for high achievers and productivity nerds. Neurodiverse students also benefit from robust systems that capture and curate incoming information in clear and concise ways, and can help them see without distraction what's coming up and what to prioritize.
In this project, you will create a dashboard that aggregates, curates, and displays information gleaned from various sources: your calendar, todo apps, scraped from Moodle, etc. To create this dashboard, you will need to:
A dashboard that aggregates data from multiple sources.
HCI and/or Data Visualization would be helpful, but are not strictly necessary for this project.
To be added later.
