Students often have a lot of questions in class and about projects, but don’t dare to ask them, don’t use the old university learning management systems (LMS) or email spam instructors with the same questions over and over again.
What it does
UnitedClasses.com is an (anonymous) communication and Q&A tool in a university course setting. With UnitedClasses.com, students and instructors can (anonymously) ask questions and reply. Instructors can mark correct answers, and social liking is allowed as well. UnitedClasses.com can be used as a complementary tool (e.g. via link) to existing learning management systems (LMS) such as Blackboard and Moodle which don’t provide an intuitive way to ask and answer questions.
How we built it

Challenges we ran into
Connecting React.js and Firebase.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
4 confirmed lecturers at EPFL want to deploy our system to use in their (corona-online) classes.
What we learned
Build something people want. User validation. React Material-UI.
