ClassWall is a free social network primarily built for higher education. It allows university students, professors and organizations to collaborate on various points. Students get to showcase their work, compare and enhance their skills. Professors can engage their students with real time questions, quizzes and curate media across the net for the knowledge gain of students.
It provides a holistic social network to learn and collaborate using responsive features
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.
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.
