Visualization of Course Requisites

  • Author / Creator
    Arango Moreno, Camilo
  • We present an interactive tool for browsing the requisites between courses in the University of Alberta as a case study of dependency visualization. This tool uses multiple interactive visualizations to allow the user to explore the courses' dependencies. We performed a usability study that showed that students perform planning tasks faster and more accurately using our tool compared to Bear Tracks, the current registration system used at the university, which only provides textual descriptions of the course requisites.
