#Hackathon ##An innovative web-app that helps students at MIT
##How might we help students on MIT? Creating value for students and for school.
##How can we create added value? We have to define student’s goals and needs/pain points.
##Students needs/pain points
- Students might not be able to take notes for every lecture for many reasons (sickness, work, etc.).
- On the Fronter you can find lesson plans and PDFs, but they don’t give you enough information.
- This lack becomes especially bad when you have to study for an exam and you miss some note.
##Our goal… …is to help students providing them notes and information about every lecture, and we want to do this by making a collaborative notebook in which everyone can share their material (as tasks, notes, code snippets and pictures).
- With our web-app students can easily confront each other and share their knowledge, getting a richer and more complete learning experience.
- Having access to all this content can also reduce the differences of knowledge between students of the same class.
##School outcome We believe that a higher number of students will pass the exams with better grades thanks to our web-app, and this makes a lot of added value for the school.
##Which features will create the desired outcomes?
- Must haves
- Login system for students (each user assigned to a class)
- Students can upload information about every lecture as:
- Bullet points
- Plain text
- Nice to have
- Admin account (who is the one telling the system which classes have which subjects)
- Being able to see info from other classes, but without writing permissions
- Nice to have but we will never have time to do these things anyway
- Fronter integration (same login, get the classes, etc.)
##How it’s made
- OOP paradigm
- Github to synchronize the development of the web-app and make the code open-source
