After getting a glimpse into a world where we are unable to leave our houses, we realize the level of in-class education has been a difficult one to uphold. Many people are currently struggling to keep up with class material due to the new online format. However, there have been people experiencing these problems with education long before 2020. EduStream aims to provide tutoring sessions through live-stream and recordings to anyone looking to improve their education. During early versions of EduStream, user testing was collected through paper prototyping and the testing revealed EduStream is a program that university students would be willing to use. Students were interested in the simplicity of the interface and countless hours of free, additional help they would have available to them at a moment’s notice. The idea of live-streaming classes and tutoring sessions is something we expect to help make learning more accessible to users who are unable to attend class and further enrich the learning process for everyone involved. We are able to include a larger demographic of people into the education system by allowing learning opportunities to extend outside of the classroom while simultaneously enhancing current students by having class lectures accessible outside of the classroom.
