Frustration from not being able to get lab and tutorial slots. Been camping in front of the computer for a whole day and never got any slots, which some ended up having to drop some modules. It can also be difficult to make any mutual swaps if you don't have a wide network of friends. Hence, this central website would be the best way to do this swap.
What it does
Students input current class to be swapped, together with desired class. MMS provides a list of matching requests to user, providing a streamlined approach to linking up with other students who has the desired slot.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Due to limited experience with APIs, it was a difficult process but we definitely learnt a lot after this.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Being able to use APIs and make a website from scratch
What we learned
Using APIs and web development skills, as well as effective communication within a team.
This version is currently a desktop version. Would continue to work on it so that it allows users to access it on their mobile devices and tablets.
