College is an amazing place to network and have fun, but over the years its been disregarded for the actual education you perceive. Large classes mean less engagement and less one on one interaction, leaving you clueless on certain topics.
Other than that, sometimes your professor might not go in depth on a certain topic you’re interested in. And you have a hard time finding a professional in that field to connect to. Which is why we created Oxylearn, a platform to connect students with professionals on every field allowing them to learn whatever they want!
💻 How does it work
Student post a proposal detailing the topic they want to study Educators will comment, detailing their price, as well as experience The student then can approve as much educators as they like and then go on a 1:1 study session With this system students can learn whatever they want with no limits!
🔨 How we built it
We used ReactJS as our framework, TailwindCSS for styling. For our api, we used an Express API, connected to a Firebase database. We also used Firebase for authentication.
🧠 Challenges we ran into
We had some trouble with multiple bugs, and we weren't able to finish the whole project. We also weren't organised so it was hard to work together.
🏅 Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to design a good platform idea, and were able to start on making it.
📖 What we learned
We learnt that we should use a simpler framework, such as Next.JS, and that we should have allocated time and management.
🚀 What's next for Oxylearn
- Adding integrated chat
- Video call feature
- Finishing the platform
