There has been a longstanding need for the Valparaiso University College of Engineering Hesse Learning Resource Center to track exchanged slots in the shift schedule to ensure tutor coverage. A portal and backend specific to the Hesse Center’s specific requirements and desires has been built that allows for easy data entry and appropriate Center staff oversight. The unique data points including year, major, and subject-specific aptitude were particular considerations for the design, along with the routine needed for aggregation of specific pieces of information. This latter capability is particularly critical to supporting the staff desire to incentivize self-management and mutual assistance. The web page uses ReactJS for the front-end view to create the shift exchange board and the shift posting form pages. Drop down menus and a clickable calendar are provided for the shift posting form for ease of use. Users are able to log in to the system with their University Google Suite accounts. Express provides the back-end and data handling for this application.
