The new normal has moved the traditional classrooms online. Teachers are finding it hard to adapt to this new online experience as they are not well versed with the tech-savvy platforms out there. Classroom connect aims to solve this problem by providing a very easy-to-use platform for teachers.
What it does
Classroom connect is a one-stop tool for teachers to manage all their classroom interactions. It acts as a gateway between teachers and students to interact, ask questions, clear doubts, submit assignments and what not! It also sends real-time SMS notifications in case messages are missed! This is powered by Twilio
How I built it
Classroom connect is built using ReactJS on the frontend, Nodejs and expressjs on the backend, Stream to power chat functionality, and Twilio to send SMS notifications
Challenges I ran into
Connecting the frontend to the backend was a bit hard
Accomplishments that I am proud of
Building a fully functional and easy-to-use application that will help teachers and students across the world is something I am proud of!
