  1. Student: Easier to get to

    It would be nice to go to connectcarolina.unc.edu and then sign in and be on the page. It's annoying to have to go to my.unc.edu, sign in, find Connect Carolina in the ever-changing middle menu, and then go there.

    • Student: Improve the performance of the system

      During peak undergrad usage period (the weeks surrounding and including registration as well as the first week of the semester) ConnectCarolina has struggled significantly in terms of user response. Given the competitive nature of undergrad registration at Carolina, students need a system that will respond quickly to their requests allowing them to register for the classes they need.

      Certainly this is a broad complaint; however, I think that it is imperative for the ConnectCarolina team to consider ways to make ConnectCarolina responsive and robust even at peak usage times.

      • Student: Change the default term for registration and grades

        Last semester when registering for spring 2011 classes, the system defaulted to the fall 2010 term. This forced you to go back and change the term to the spring 2011 term in order to register. Instead of having the system default to the term that is currently in progress, it would be much easier if the upcoming term was defaulted as soon as its shopping cart was made available. Also, it would be much easier if the default term for grades was the most recent term to have been completed instead of the current term, as there will actually be…

          • Student: Make it easier to get to the main page.

            It's always a huge hassle to get back to the main page.

            • Student: Make it more intuitive.

              Information is not where you expect it to be. We are a computer-savy audience. We shouldn't have to read a manual to use a webpage.

              • Student: Get rid of the "Invalid Session" screen when you click on the Student Center

                Often when I login to my.unc.edu and click on Student Center I get a page that says "Session Expired" and asks me to logout and it is really annoying.

                  Make it easier to navigate from one page to another within Connect Carolina without having to go back to the student center every time.

                  • Student: Color Scheme

                    The closed icon should be red not blue as the blue box is misleading.

                    • Student: Aesthetics

                      Make ConnectCarolina more aesthetically pleasing. I know this isn't quite the most important thing to do with the system, but making the user experience more pleasing in terms of aesthetics would reduce the frustrations of students when other facets of the system are not working. For example, making font larger, maybe adding in a picture or some more Carolina blue?

                      • Staff: Make the student's name bigger...for us with old eyes

                        The pages we use in Academic Advising have the student's name in I think a font size of 8...while othe rinformation is larger and much simpler to read. Sounds basic but it would be a big help.
