Hi! I'm Noah, a student at the Karel de Grote Hogeschool in Antwerp who's studying NxTmedia Technology Web Development.
Since the COVID-19 virus changed the way of teaching and following lectures we've been trying to find a solution for the inactivity of students and for centralization of some information. Aftera long time of brainstorming we finnally found a "solution" that should make it possible for students an their teachers to get more attention for announcements that are being published on canvas.
In our school we use discord as a full time replacement of normal tutoring. since we had to do everything online to minimize the contact. Over a short period of time more and more students of were getting used to using discord as a teaching platform. Most of the students already knew Discord as a voice communication platform for gaming. Mostly they were online here instead of Canvas.
What we've created is a bot that makes it possible to create watchlists in text channels that announce new incoming announcements of the courses that are being watched.
This made it possible to reach our students much faster and created a much bigger chance for you that the students would read it.
we've just released the first version of our Discord bot and we would like some opinions! As honest as possible 😉
There is a more detailed explanation on our public GitHub repository for the ones who're interested! Also we've open-sourced the whole project just to support the community and help the ones who need it!
