Screenshots of the app

I created MyJoe to collate information spread across different University of Birmingham services, so that students can keep up to date with what is going on with their course, and allow students to focus on studying rather than carrying out administrative tasks. The app has several features, including:

  • Canvas assignments (including an indicator to show if an assignment has been submitted, and showing grades)
  • Showing a customised timetable, from Web Timetables, based upon their programme and chosen modules
  • Campus maps
  • Opening times for some campus locations
  • Links to Library Services’ JustAsk chat system, Careers Network appointment booking, and Outlook’s directory for looking up contact details
  • Emergency phone numbers to security
  • Settings menu (accessed through the person icon), to logout of Canvas, or change the timetable programme/modules

The app, along with a README with more information about the project, is on GitHub.
