Our first presentation was about explaining the concept of our app.
In brief our app is an interactive personalised timetable calendar, that can be used by both students and staff of international universities. The idea came to us in a brainstorm of likes and dislikes we have when navigating ‘Blackboard’ – the platform that allows us to receive message, announcements and download information from lectures.
The idea of our app is to replace blackboard, so that all materials, contacts and timetables can be managed on one site in a simple layout.
Some ideas we challenge were additional features such as ‘live chat’ a feature that does not currently exist on blackboard but could potentially use in this new app.
