The WSA is Reviving E-Squid

Cordelia Blanchard ’12 and Micah Siegel-Wallace ’10, of the WSA’s Academic Affairs Committee, write:

What is this E-squid you might say? It was an old Wes-specific version of rate-my-professor.com. The Academic Affairs Committee is trying to bring it back, because who likes sitting down on the first day of drop/add to a boring professor? BUT…..there’s a catch. We need a programmer!

We are willing to pay you, yes you, to program our new site and allow hundreds of your fellow students to avoid the painful and traumatic experience of dropping a boring class.

Required skills and specs outlined after the jump.

Required Skills/Specs for E-squid:
-Availability both on and off campus
-Ability to rate professors, courses, and departments by semester, both individually and collectively
-Ability to view ratings of professors, courses, and departments by semester, both particularly and cumulatively
-Ability to comment on professors, courses, etc., including a method to police the comments and vote them up or down as helpful or abusive
-Scale of 1-10 and comment field for a number of questions
-Easily updated course, professor, and department register through database of courses, teachers, and departments
-A suggestion box for upgrading and updating E-squid

Payment is negotiable.  If you are interested please send your resume and ideas to cjblanchard@wesleyan.edu.

    Braille: what I heard from people who had been involved with the old one, was that something in the coding made it superhard to add the new classes each semester, and it as just too much of a time commitment. Presumably this time when it’s coded they’ll make it easier to import the class information.

    Fun fact: I learned from an alum a couple years ago that the reason it’s called E-Squid is because “squid” used to be Wes slang for a nerd. Why? Because the sci-li windows look like a fishtank, and the science nerds would be the ones studying in the fishtank on weekend nights.

    Please do this! Thank you so much for bringing it back! I wish I knew how to program so I could be the programmer. It’s ridiculous that we can’t take advantage of all our fellow student’s success and failure classes!
