RoomHelper 3000

A webapp to manage a class of students in a computer lab.

  • shows where the students are sitting (from the teacher’s and the students’ perspective)
  • lets the students indicate they need help, are done with the current task, or have an answer to the question being asked
  • randomly chooses students from the entire class, or from just those who have indicated they have an answer
  • shows the students the current task, or other message from the teacher
  • gives realtime polls
    • short text
    • multiple choice
    • from 0 to 10
  • allows the students to chat with each other (when the teacher permits it)
  • allows sharing by students of links to approved domains
  • provides a bell that rings on all the computers
  • allows the teacher to pre-load poll questions

Improvement ideas:

  • Log in with Google
  • Chat:
    • Delete all messages from a person
    • Disable chat for a person
  • Make it easier to help students in order of them checking the box. Maybe a special marking for whoever is next. Perhaps this:
    • An assistant page that is like the teacher page, but with less power, and focused on helping kids in the order requested
  • Let the students pick their location by clicking on the seating chart instead of by row and column
  • Show poll results graphically à la Google forms
  • Use HTML and CSS to draw the stations rather than p5.js
  • Color code the station boxes to praise or warn students
  • Allow teachers to configure without having to change
    • Seat layout
    • Class periods
