We love scheduling. Seriously.
ofCourse is a software company wholly dedicated to solving a wickedly difficult problem: the creation of college course schedules. Founded at Washington University in St. Louis, ofCourse is led by a professor, a former university IT director and a veteran programmer.
Whether you’re a top law school, a community college or a business program, you can have a scheduling system that’s so much better than spreadsheets and sticky notes. We’ve spent over 10 years developing a platform that makes course scheduling fast, efficient, and even delightful. You may have just met the only people more interested in your course schedule than you are.
