When studying for an exam for a class, many student's go-to study method is flash cards. Flash cards are effective for some students, but for other students they are not helpful. There are seven learning styles: verbal, visual, aural, physical, social, logical and solitary. We want to cater to students who fall into these categories by providing a study tool for different learning styles.
What it does
Users can sign in and create flash cards that are specific to their learning style. They can upload images, audio files, and text. Based on the learning style they choose, Se7enth Sense will search for images and videos for the user to add to their flash card stack. They can view their previous and current stack of flash cards on their My Cards homepage.
How we built it
We used the Flask, a web development framework, to connect the HTML pages and python scripts. We used Bootstrap and HTML/CSS for the website pages. For our database that contains the flash cards, we implemented a SQLite database. To search bing, we used the Bing Web Search API and Azure application service to deploy our web application.
Challenges we ran into
DEPLOYMENT! This was the first time we used Microsoft's Azure cloud services and deployed a python Flask web app.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We deployed a web application on Azure!
What we learned
We learned how to utilize Azure cloud services and learned about the Bing Web Search API.
What's next for Se7enth Sense
Implement more features such as a speech-to-text feature and a shared flash card stack for peers in the same class.
