As students, we were inspired by our own problems in accessing resources and losing track of our mental health with all the pressure that comes from school. The main gist of the website was to bring together resources for academics and mental health into one page. The overall layout of the website puts emphasis on various shades of blue. We put a lot of thought into this color because we wanted calming colors to go with the website's purpose. Blue is a color that is found almost everywhere in nature, from the sky to the sea. We experimented with various blue-toned landscapes as backgrounds for different parts of the website.
What it does?
This website eases your worries of exams with academic resources while also providing resources on mental health. In a time where students are in regular clutches of depression with the fear in studies, this website acts as a all-in-one resource for them.
How we built it?
We built this website by collaborating on repl.it, writing the html code and making it look pleasing using CSS. It took some time to compile the resources and understand the nature of its functioning, but in the end it turned out great!
Challenges we ran into
We had some problems with fixing the flex-box for some of our columns. But we were able to fix it eventually by looking into what was the root cause of the problem. There were also some issues with the buttons but those were looked after by the efforts of the team.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the website that we made in less than 24 hours. We are proud to have built a website that is going to help students in their low, either mentally or academically. We are proud to have built a website that serves society.
What we learned
We learned that there is a lot that could be made in 24 hours; teamwork and efficient management from our hardworking members was all that was needed! As evident, you can build anything!
What's next for Calm Class
We are looking forward to add a appointment feature where you can book an appointment with a psychologist. We are also looking forward to host many quality academic materials. Hopefully, Calm Class will become a go-to resource for students around the world who struggle with balancing their mental health and academics!
