Course Visualization

Using the excellent TouchGraph library, I created a visualization of RIT classes which students tend to take together.

As a threshold, I limited the results to the top 95% of all associated courses (the most associated courses occuring together 1452 times, out of over 30,000 schedules). I played with setting the threshold to courses which occur together a certain percentage of the time, but the results were rather lacking. In the current view you can see Labs and Classes highly associated with one another, along with courses that students of different concentrations or year levels might take together. It’s a rather neat find.
