Elon University Model

With the help of a vendor, Elon built a user-friendly web platform where student information and experiences can be uploaded as an Excel spreadsheet to create the PDF infographic. Students must opt-in to receive the cocurricular transcript, which is released as part of a PDF file that includes both the academic and experiential transcript. Each experience has a code and associated icon. The front page of the visual transcript uses those icons to present a summary of each experience, and the second page presents that data as a visualization. The goal is to make the visual transcript something that is easily digestible for readers as well as sharable via social media.
