The University of St Andews Centre for Academic, Professional and Organisational Development (CAPOD) provides a comprehensive range of opportunities to support personal,
professional and academic development for all staff and students. CAPOD contributes to organisational effectiveness by promoting engagement with institutional values and priorities
CAPOD approached Bad Dinosaur to create a tool that manages tutoring appointments within the university between undergraduate tutees and postgraduate tutors.
They were managing appointments via phonecalls, emails and spreadsheets - a job that was keeping at least one staff member busy full-time.
They needed something that would be simple to use both for staff and students and were intrigued by Tutlings, one of Bad Dinosaur’s own products.
Tutlings was born from Kyle's recognition of similar problems in the education sector. Slthough Tutlings had the appointment functionality that CAPOD needed,
the system was completely autonommous and was not really designed to have an "administrator" involved.
