Program-to-Program Articulation for the World Wide Web.
Morton, Charles H.; Shough, Stuart
Beginning in the Fall of 1995, the University of South Carolina-Spartanburg (USCS) embarked on a new trek to make transfer of course work from two-year, associate degree granting institutions, into baccalaureate degrees. With the vast amount of information being manipulated, it was discovered that a database would be the best method of data management; "Microsoft Access" (c) was chosen as the database engine and soon all data for the articulation agreements was entered. It was decided that the World Wide Web would be used to make the data easily accessible to students. To translate the "Microsoft Access" database reports into HTML, an "Internet Assistant" developed by Microsoft was used; however due to its limitations, a no-cost HTML editor called "AOLpress" was located on the Web and used to add background images and graphics files. Once the HTML pages were completed, files were then e-mailed to the USCS Webmaster for publication to the USCS Webserver. This project illustrates that through the use of readily available software on the Web, novices can easily create personal projects. Exhibits provided at the end of this paper include the USCS Agreements, and Degree Choices Report. (AEF)
