Welcome to the SIMS Corpus project website!
The SIMS Corpus project is the final project research of Mukesh Darke, Krista Gettle, and Diana Stepner.
We are Masters candidates at the School of Information
Management and Systems at UC
As U.C. Berkeley’s School of Information Management and Systems (SIMS)
ends its seventh academic year, an opportune time presents itself
to evaluate SIMS in the context of its mission and student body.
The SIMS Corpus project
team initially set out to create a data model representative of
the SIMS domain, but this proved to be more of a strategic and
exercise than we anticipated. In order to classify SIMS’ academic
resources (i.e. identity, courses, and degree tracks), we had to
gain some consensus from stakeholders about the current nature
and value of the SIMS
experience. Our final project highlights the issues we discovered
and offers recommendations on how the SIMS experience can be improved.
