The EduRotations software is the result of a 10-year phase development process, during which the application went through rigorous testing, revamping, tuning, and has finally reached its maturity phase.
Due to the stringent development process used, which focused heavily on implementing user-driven features, EduRotations is an enviable piece of software that can greatly benefit other institutions wanting to streamline their rotations scheduling process.
Western University of Health Sciences (WesternU) ran across the thorny issue experienced by hundred of other institutions, which is scheduling rotations for its medical students and ensuring an accurate and efficient scheduling process. The initial scheduling process was excruciating painful, time consuming, prone to errors, and labor intensive. WesternU decided to invest in developing an application that would streamline the scheduling process and 10 years later EduRotations emerged from this laborious effort. As a result, the scheduling process has reached a level of efficiency that was hard to imagine just a few years ago.
One key principle, integral to the development process, was the user-driven and student-driven approach taken while creating the software. EduRotations was designed from the ground up with the user in mind; great efforts were put into developing the application from a user’s point of view and ensuring that users spend their time using the software, and not continuously learning how to use it.
