schedweb: Design considerations

The principal audience for a Web-based course schedule is the student who is trying to decide what courses to take. The fields shown are the same as the printed schedule: course number, section type, section number, credit hours, title, instructor, dates and times, and fees if any.

The output of schedweb is a two-level web, with a top-level index page listing the 4-letter department codes and the corresponding names, with each being a link to a page showing all the courses for that code. Each department page lists the courses ordered by course number. See the mockup of the proposed output, which shows an index and part of one sample department (Physics), to get a feel for the format.

Automatic linking to other pages for catalog course descriptions, instructors, and eventually even rooms will be added as the Public Information Office's webs in those areas stabilize.
