Our inspiration for this project stems from the system that Stevens uses for registering for a tutor. We felt that it was a pain to request a tutor and wait a few days to get an email that you got one or walk all the way to the walk-in tutoring center at the library. We wanted a system that was easier to use and much more user-friendly that could connect you to other students from anywhere you wanted.
What it does
Cloud Tutoring allows a student to choose any topic and course that they need help with, this will match them up with a tutor that is an expert in that subject and allow the student to ask them questions or meet up with them on campus for a one on one tutoring session.
How we built it
We built it with the user interface being our main priority. We wanted it to be as easy to use as possible. We created a website using HTML and CSS and added assets to it using photoshop and illustrator. We used Amazon Web Services to host the website.
Challenges we ran into
The main challenge we ran into was that neither of us knew how to code at all and had never made a website before. We did not know how to make the back-end of the website for the chat-box to work or the log-in portion of the website.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of the front-end of the website and user interface. We are also proud of our concepts for the future of the website and the app.
What we learned
We learned a lot about HTML and CSS as well as website making since we came in knowing nothing. We also learned about photoshop and adobe-xd as well as adobe-illustrator.
What's next for Cloud Tutoring
In the future, we would like to update the website to work like the mock-up we made, as well as implement the app so that students can use Cloud Tutoring from their phones. We also would need to create the schools' access and make it so that they can manage their tutors and change the classes.
