Professor In Touch asked me to update the Professor profile page, the Student profile page, change some information on the New Note page, modify search parameters on the Student Search page, create a password reset feature, and design and create a research keyword system. I also created a recommendation engine based on over 1,000 research keywords that provides students and professors with Suggested Matches. Some screenshots of these features are shown below.
