SIT Learning becomes Constructor LearningRead more

From our founding as Propulsion Academy in 2016 to our acquisition by SIT last year, today we welcome our new brand name: Constructor Learning. Constructor Learning is part of the Constructor Group, initially named Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT). The organization was founded in 2019 by Dr. Serg Bell, a long-time entrepreneur and investor in technology and education. Dedicated to creating knowledge through science, education and technology, the ecosystem combines a comprehensive educational offering that spans the entire learning lifecycle, from K-12 to a private university and executive courses, next-generation research capabilities and commercial activities for technological innovation. Founded and headquartered in Schaffhausen, SIT has rapidly grown since its creation, thanks to organic growth and acquisitions. As it has become a global organization with a footprint in more than 15 countries and a worldwide network of researchers, professors, investors, clients, and alumni, the brand had to be rethought to reflect this expansion better and unify the entire ecosystem under one name: Constructor.

Valtech consultant scheduling dashboard - enhance the current consultant scheduling dashboard

Students: Laura van Os, Levente Pap, Yevgeni Samarin, Miri Yoo





Valtech uses a dashboard to manage the availability of their current consultants. The goal of the project was to redesign the dashboard to provide a user-friendly experience, as well as implement an intuitive overview for consultant availability.

The team built a platform that tracked employees and project details. The dashboard included indicators of efficiency and the current project status. This assisted the consultants in their decision and planning processes and promotes efficiency. The team also provided an additional solution, in which a shared timeframe is assigned to the projects and employees simultaneously. This allows for dynamic changes in deadlines. This means that when a project is running shorter or longer than expected, the availability of assigned staff is adjusted as well.




 
Features:
  • Redesigned and combined two existing apps into one
  • Implemented the option to book a consultant within the same app
  • Implemented a dashboard with key indicators of relevant company data for quick analysis
  • Functionality to create a new project or new consultant





Features to implement in the future:
  • Send a Google calendar invite to the consultant when they are booked for a project
  • Include employee holidays for better planning
  • Graphic calendar to visualize consultants’ availability

No, it’s not just another social media site to post your silly pictures.
This is a platform for developers only. The purpose of the platform is to bring a community of like-minded people around the world closer together. A community where developers can interact, learn, share opportunities, and represent themselves. On this platform ideas can come to life and assistance for developers can be provided. 
One can join by invitation only, which will ensure that the community is composed of people with similar interests. Members can earn points which can be used to invite people from the outside to join the platform. Points are earned through participation, such as providing solutions to code problems. In addition, users can earn badges and rise in ranking through activity and time spent on the platform.





Features:
  • Ability to create posts with text, images, and code snippets
  • Able to run the code snippets in different programming languages
  • Endorse a post by liking it, or giving badges
