NUS has remained one of the best institutions for quality education for years. One way they have managed to do this is by utilising cutting edge technology to make learning enjoyable for their students.

Presenting the NUS EdTech Challenge — an intense 2-day brainstorming session to push education to new heights by harnessing the power of technology

Alvin, Reactor’s Training Qilin, joined the challenge as a participant. Despite competing against many teams that included faculty members and professors, his team managed to develop a prototype that won them 2nd place!

Their prototype was an integrated platform which allows students to take notes collaboratively. Students’ questions are then met with real-time feedback from teachers, ensuring that their understanding matches what’s being taught. They are also granted access to the full transcript and audio recording of every slide, to cater to those who learn at a different pace.

Furthermore, teachers are enabled to conduct quizzes without having to switch between platforms. By making use of this technology, institutions can discover in-depth insights into their students’ learning experiences. This helps teachers teach better, and students learn better.

While a few other teams had similar ideas, Alvin and his team won because of their well-developed prototype. A learning point here is this: ideas are aplenty, but execution is key!

Congratulations to Alvin and his team, Pins. Good job guys, keep up the great work.
