Bridge2Africa E-learning Lab

Meeting time

Monday 3:05PM

Project description

The EPICS Bridge2Africa E-Learning Lab team is an extension of the Bridge2Africa organization, whose goal is to expand STEM learning to African students through an online e-learning website. Our community partner is Justice Gumbochuma, the head of the Bridge2Africa’s Cyber Projects. Our group is tasked with improving the existing Bridge2Africa E-Learning Lab website by updating its overall UX/UI and adding various features such as gamification, a built-in website store, a FAQ helper bot, and a subscription system for students. Our current goal is to transition from students using Wakelet as a temporary platform for their learning to the actual Bridge2Africa E-Learning Lab website.

Our proposed solution to our problem is to have psuedocode/prototypes for all new features requested by Gumbochuma created by the end of this semester. Our first and most important task is to update the entirety of the website’s UX/UI in order to make it more appealing and easier to navigate for students. Additionally, we plan to have a fully functional FAQ and payment system integrated into the website and will start work on designing prototypes and implementing the rest of the features (such as gamification, student profiles, etc.).
