Client wanted to build an online network for all the Australian universities. They wanted to connect students with relevant peers, student organizations, staff, & employers in an online network tailored for the university experience client wanted to build a script that crawls the university website to search for relevant information, which would be organized into different units, thus helping create a time table for the students Client had given urls for different universities and a pattern to fetch the data. They needed data from different universities as per patterns mentioned.
Silver Touch proposed a Web Scrapping technique to fetch data from the different websites. The script will perform the task with minimal time & effort. The solution includes all the universities in Australia. The scripts will be customized to suit the institute needs. Each university can upload its course, admission process/details, examination patterns and their unique facilities on site allocated exclusively for it. The portal has a secured login facility. Students of selected Australian Universities can sign-in using their Facebook login id or their email id. People with a verified email address can join the University network. The scraping algorithm will be modified as per the university information.
