This is my best effort to present this data to the user. and i hope there are better ways.
fwiw: what i want to do is show a student his syllabus and color the course nodes using his status in that course; status options are:pass fail can-registered can't-register
Also i want to show the pre-requisite and co-requisite connections between all courses
i'm open to all suggestions.
