Abstract

Prestissimo was founded in 2012 in response to the difficulty students found using PRESTO, Oberlin’s user-unfriendly course selection website. An entirely student-run project, Prestissimo aimed to give the Oberlin community a better tool for viewing class information and choosing courses. Now over two years old, the site continues to grow as new students take the reins and add new functionality to meet Oberlin’s needs. Our goal in taking over the project was to improve all aspects of the user experience. A large focus was creating a more aesthetically-pleasing and logically-formatted user interface (UI). We also implemented several new features to expand the Prestissimo experience, and cleaned up a lot of the source code created by past developers.
