CLUE Website Development
Center for Learning and Undergraduate Learning (CLUE)
We are seeking funding to improve our ability to support thousands of UW students in both virtual and in-person tutoring spaces, our new educational reality at the UW. CLUE provides free drop-in tutoring for various subjects in-person in Mary Gates Hall and online through the CLUE website. CLUE also facilitates discussion sessions in MGH and virtual exam reviews. Our student assistants use our internal website infrastructure to keep track of the 125-200 students seeking tutoring each night. Student demand for virtual tutoring and exam reviews has increased which has posed unforeseen challenges since the Queue was first developed. To ensure that we meet growing student demand, we have identified several web development projects for UAA IT staff to work on, including an instant messaging feature for our front desk team to quickly address student questions. Other projects include adding more features on the Events Calendar for our Student Assistants to efficiently input CLUE’s packed discussion sections and exam reviews schedule, enabling them to focus on other CLUE projects that more directly support students and tutors. We also hope to add various features to increase the efficiency of busy CLUE nights: additional notifications to alert tutors when students join the Queue to help with monitoring, and more transparent Subject designations for multi-subject tutors. We believe that implementing these solutions all through one platform will efficiently streamline the process for the students we serve, the vast majority of which are undergraduate students.
