Bringing Transfer Student's Printed Statements to the Web
In 2011 my employer moved to the ellucian ERP system, Banner. Temple gets thousands of transfer student applications per year and we used to create and mail out a paper transfer credit statement to each one, displaying how the credits from their previous institution would apply ay Temple. Eventually, one of my colleagues who was a web developer and who managed our portal page approached me and asked if we could make the transfer credit statement electronic and viewable on the portal.
Being that I am primarily a backend developer, I created an Oracle database view for his portal page to consume, and together we tackled ending paper print outs and mailed statements, increasing the ease and speed for which transfer student prospects could get the critical information they needed.
Probably not have had paper statements in the first place!
