Our Story – Innovating since 2001

Brothers Alan and Sean Weeks created Visual Schedule Builder (VSB) while students themselves, frustrated with cumbersome traditional scheduling methods. After several years of student testing, VSB was introduced with great success at Montreal’s Concordia and McGill Universities. In the following years VSB was implemented at dozens of leading institutions of higher education all across Canada and the United States.

In 2019, VSB become part of the Digarc product suite and became known as Register (reflecting the way that students use the tool to register for classes), and in 2021, Digarc became part of Modern Campus.

The results of Register has been impressive. Administrators have seen a dramatic decrease in student frustration during orientation and enrolment, and a vast improvement in the average student’s satisfaction with their final schedule and quality of advising. Students love the tool. We continue to innovate and enhance the software to add features for students, advisors, and predictive usage-driven analytics.

Meet Our Team

Register is built on the passion and talent of our employees and users. Reinventing how students experience their scheduling and education takes creativity and drive. Every day, we strive to create powerful and exciting user experiences for thousands of students, advisors, and orientation staff across the globe.

Since 2021, Register is part of Modern Campus so there are many additional team members and support roles to cover areas such as integration, infrastructure, client support, and sales that are not listed below. Take a look at some of the Modern Campus Leadership.
