The Admin, Instructor, and Student/Parent user types all have separate dashboards, as shown below.
Schedule 2 Drive (S2D) is the driving scheduling software that CIESC uses that allows them to manage the scheduling of their driving courses from year to year. Students use this software to schedule and view the times, locations, and days that their driving courses are taking place. S2D did not allow for integrations, so in future phases, CIESC hopes to have us build their own drive scheduling software and integrate that into this new system in order to replace their reliance on S2D.
Desire 2 Learn (D2L) is the online course software that CIESC uses to provide online courses for their students. All lectures, exams, and assignments are given and received through D2L, and are managed by Instructors of those courses. Similarly to S2D, CIESC has made it apparent that they would like for us to build them their own online course software to replace their reliance on D2L, which also did not allow for integrations.
Vantiv is the payment management software that CIESC utilizes to manage payments for course enrollments. Each payment is validated through Vantiv, as well as each refund, and fee. Vantiv similarly did not allow for integrations, and CIESC would like to build their own payment software, as well.
DESIS is essentially the contact system that CIESC uses to connect each of their locations. It operates as a hub for contact information, and is currently being redesigned and reimagined by another agency. CIESC asked for a hot-link to DESIS on the Admin and Instructor dashboards for ease of use.
Users are able to open and close the menu, expanding the screen with it closed, and condensing the screen with it open. The examples shown below all show the menu as open to provide insight into the features present for each user type.
