Lack of personal advice about suitable uni courses.
What it does
The tool asks you several questions (under the guise of a small and joyful bot avatar) about your academic interests and personality. Then, it suggests names of courses you should try exploring based on the result. The questions asked in the questionnaire depend on your previous answers to questions in the same session.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Picking valid ideas and making sure that the project is not too ridiculously ambitious for 24 hours' worth of work were the biggest challenges for our group.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud of picking an idea that can help people choose their uni course! All of us in the group can vividly remember the pressure associated with picking what we'd like to do for the rest of our lives in such a short space of time. Knowing that we are creating something for a good cause is an amazing accomplishment.
What we learned
Karolina learned Bootstrap, Julia learned cmd and the rest of the group came to learn of the true power and meaning of teamwork.
What's next for Online University Course Advisor
The tool seems like a really great thing, so we're possibly thinking about actually finishing this project in the future! We're confident that it would help people undertaking their A Levels and exploring their options.
