During these pandemic days, our team too are facing issues while learning through online portals. So our team took a step forward in resolving the common issues and further improvising it.
What it does
CoachAlly application helps in creating interactive virtual classrooms using the latest technologies like Augmented Reality and creates room for the virtual classroom through high-quality video calling with a low-latency experience. Augmented reality in education is surging in popularity in schools worldwide. Through AR, educators are able to improve learning outcomes through increased engagement and interactivity.AR features aspects that enhance the learning of abilities like problem-solving, collaboration, and creation to better prepare students for the future. Teachers can include custom AR objects and pre-recorded lecture videos which help students view course materials at the ease of their home. Live sessions can be held virtually through the class meet option. We have designed a one-step join meeting keeping in mind of young students. App seeks only the meet code and doesn't collect other credentials thus improvising the privacy of end-user. We have also integrated an ASSIST feature which guides the users step-by-step if they either need a walkthrough on a feature or if they encounter a bug. Our main advantage of this feature allows users can make use of an in-app screenshot feature with a doodle option on board with ease to contact the admin/developer hassle-free.
How I built it
Came across the Flutter technology recently and since then was caught up with it. We are amateurs and this is our first big step upfront on solving the problem with it.
We have approached our problem with Flutter which makes the app run natively on all platforms. The UI is made with help of google's material UI. The video call runs seamlessly with the help of agora as backend. The feedbacks, assist is done with the help of wiredash which provides instant messages which the end-users provide.
Would thank our sponsor echo-AR which helped us integrate AR seamlessly with our app. CoachAlly is a light-weight app which is available across various platforms- Mobile platforms- IOS, Android Desktop app-MacOs, Windows, Linux Web app- Across all browsers
Challenges I ran into
We came across many challenges as this our first big approach using Flutter. We thank the mentors who took the time to help us. Students get insights on concepts& better understanding with AR & am proud to be a part to contribute to the global community.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are very proud of the big leap which we dared to attempt has come out a bug-free working app in a short span of hours.Have learned many skills way from starting of the Hack. We learned to face the challenge by short days to give the best outcome of our app.
What's next for CoachAlly -Interactive Virtual Classroom & Video Calling app
We aim to increase security and add feature-rich contents and make our app more accessible to all age groups.We plan to improvise our app consistently for best end user satisfaction.
