Our projects aim to make tech more accessible to everyone, especially for those who are unfamiliar with the online world. We were inspired by the elderly people who were unable to keep in touch with their families during the Covid19 pandemic.
We provide people with online learning tutorials/tools and allow them to ask questions through a search engine. All of our tutorials are designed for people with little to none internet literacy and organized into categories from beginner to advanced. This way, we allow users to simply ask questions or start learning things themselves.
We used Firebase to host our website, Domain from domain.com, Html, and CSS.
Our biggest challenge was the fact that none of us had any experience in Google Cloud and we all had minimal experience in HTML and CSS. Fortunately, we were able to determine what services worked for our project (firecloud) and use them to work effectively as a team!
In the future, we want to implement an online AI chatbot, allow volunteers to answer questions, and add an FAQ section.
