The last two weeks have been split between the website, and the Chrome extension. For the website, a new Course List has been added, as well as some bugs, and the big change is the API. Now that the site has a public API, the Chrome extension can talk to it. This required some CORS changes, and I wanted to add token authentication, but left it as session. This means that only web browsers can currently use the system, but it also means that the Chrome extension can use the API. In the future I will add a token authentication so that others may use the API.
The user will be able to view their updates on the site, and also track their understanding of the course in the future.
Very happy to have a Chrome extension launched! Now version 2 of the extension will actually have the functionality that is required to track the user’s progress as they use the MOOC of their choice. This is the main focus of the next week.
I also plan to add reminders to the system for the users once it starts tracking your goals.
Finally I need to put together the paper and video for the final submission of the project.
