The Challenge

ClassWall started with a dream to create a product which would change the way knowledge is disseminated and consumed in the higher education space. ClassWall required a team which could not only implement the idea but also help refine it and suggest features as the product was developed.

Our Solution

Knoldus worked with the team at ClassWall to build a roadmap to create a MVP which could be taken to the educational institutes and investors. Mostly all features were built for responsiveness and availability. Clustering and load balancing was incorporated to take care of exam time traffic. The features were released on a sprint to sprint basis and tested on the battleground with two pilot universities in California.

Currently the product is being heavily used in the beta sites and is under private beta. ClassWall was able to garner investor interest and successfully validate the idea in production. Knoldus continues to be their engineering arm for the product as we get to the bigger league which would have larger scalability and concurrency concerns.
