The idea of building a data dashboard whoch would be used to target weak areas and reproduce best practice in order to help people learn better in developing countries.
What it does
We use the simple idea of the size of circles indicating how well a centre is performing for a given metric. We have made the interface very simple where you can choose to nalyse centres individually or together and then will see a dashboard of various metrics for them averaged over the last month. By clicking on a metric you can see its breakdown over several months.
How we built it
We mde this a java applet so that it can run on any platform and used JavaFX to create the GUI
Challenges we ran into
Collaborating over GitHub for the first time caused many issues in the beginning. We also had trouble designing a GUI and data analysis algorithms before the processing of inputs was complete.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud to hve (hopefully) created something which works and provides meaningful information to the user. We hope that the practices used in most of our design are scalable and could be built upon easily to create a nice finished product.
What we learned
We learned how to collaborate over github and also to split work up as a team and communicate with eachother by defining the interfaces between each section before we started the actual code.
What's next for slate2learn
We hope that this project will be a basis that can be worked on and developed further in the future. We feel that our simple interface is a good idea as it is very visual and makes it easy to judge how well a centre is performing.
