It is our intent to grow and develop Service Learning Pro to meet the growing needs of the Service Learning community. The original system was built around the needs and requirements of the Service Learning team at Boise State University. Kara Hartmann and her team deserve most of the credit for making Service Learning Pro a reality.
Partner Module -- The partner module maintains the partner/agency profile and project list. Partners fill out a form on the "public" website that places their profile in a temporary record in the database. When complete SL staff is notified by e-mail. Once the SL staff approves the agency, the contact is provided access to the Control Panel where they can manage their projects and request "class matches." Partners have access to an orientation roster, student roster by project and student roster by project. They can also complete the student assessment on-line.
Faculty Module -- The faculty members are added by SL staff. Once the faculty member is added they can manage their profile and classes through the Control Panel. They can request "project matches" from the list of approved agencies. Faculty determines how many projects students can "register" for in their classes.
Student Module -- Student profiles are added either through uploading the student records from a flat text file for added by the student if their profile is not found the first time they try to log in. Student information is archived by term so student "counts" can be kept on a historical basis.
Administrative Module -- SL administrators have full control of all modules. In addition, addition they have a web based html editor for all the pages on the public side of the system; e-mail message system that can e-mail to current and past participants depending on need (highly selectable); file upload system for documents, forms and pdf's.

COMING IN THE FUTURE:
The system is build using ColdFusion Application Server (BlueDragon 7.0) using FuseBox framework and methodology. We have developed and tested the system on both LINUX (Apache), Windows 2003 Enterprise Server (IIS 6) running ColdFusion equivalent server 4.5-MX.
