Phil improved MiGrade with local saving and reading of course XML file.
Phil produced an XML file for course choice to try to allow users to pick their course and save personal course details locally.
I had a meeting with ISLS regarding XML file/RSS feed for all university courses. Nick Benson sent me a link to be used to make requests to ISLS so that these get in to their work flow.
Mark produced content for the XML file for one course in Life Sciences. I produced XML file and MiGrade was tested with LS course successfully. Mark gave feedback: be aware of people perception of colours.
Project meeting with AGC, MC, PT. All agreed to get students to enter CW deadlines on the app.
Phil improved MiGrade (better mark entering through addition of +/- buttons)
Phil completed 1st version of MiGrade summary page. Looks really good.
I have been looking for a way for any course leader (with no technical background) to produce the required XML file for MiGrade. I have come across Tutlebite online XML editor which worked fine and meets our needs.
Phil has now completed 1st version of MiGrade, which parses XML file and produces the User Interface. Works really well. Will soon try with a course in Life Sciences.
I completed the XML file for MiGrade. I hope to be able to reuse it for MiCourse in the future but some additional fields. The XML file represents the modules taken by a typical student on BEng Mobile and Web Computing. This will now enable Phil to write the XML parser in XCode for the application.
