Q&A logo

Q&A is an education-focused app that provides a platform for students to get their questions answered when they're not in class. Students can submit questions to a live queue and they'll be connected to a teacher in a video classroom, which includes educational tools such as a live whiteboard, code and text editor.

This app was built during a two-week sprint as the capstone project for four students at Fullstack Academy in Chicago. The project requirements were to create a prototype application that incorporated web technologies learned during the program, as well as new technologies we were interested in exploring. We decided to work with WebRTC and WebSockets to create a learning platform designed for real-time collaboration.
