Penn State Student Develops App That Links Scheduling With RateMyProfessors.com

In light of the complicated history of scheduling classes at Penn State, one student developed an application that provides a glimpse into the future of our scheduling process.

Yehya Awad, a Penn State Behrend student, created a Google Chrome extension that allows students to see ratings from RateMyProfessors.com within the Penn State scheduling website, eliminating the need to switch back and forth between the sites during scheduling.

Awad is a junior studying Software Engineering with minors in Statistics and Management Information Systems. When students access his scheduling website using Google Chrome, Awad’s extension incorporates the professor rating and average grade into the general information listings for each section of the course.

You can view and install the extension here.

When we asked about the transition to LionPATH, Awad said “the current extension will not be compatible with the new system, since I haven’t had access to it yet. I do hope to develop a similar application to use in the future.” However, students scheduling for summer session under the current system will be able to take advantage of this extension in the meantime.
