We talked to Vivek Mehta, one of the co-creators of Classify, about building an online study group app for the University of Maryland students. Mehta built Classify with his two other classmates, Vaibhav Patil and Nihar Majmudar. Classify allows students to join virtual study groups to supplement their online remote learning experience. Using Bubble's no-code platform, these students made their campus-wide app to come to life.
Tell us about your app and what it does.
Classify is a free-to-use platform that allows University of Maryland students to join study groups organized by class! Say goodbye to large and inefficient group chats. Sign up with your university email and create or join study groups for any of your courses in just one click! Let Classify help you make the most out of your online semester.
How does your app work?
Classify allows users to add their current courses and create study groups within them of up to 10 users. Within these groups, students can easily communicate with each other through messaging, along with setting reminders and events to stay organized.
Tell us a little about your background and how you discovered no-code tools like Bubble.
Our Classify team is made up of three rising sophomores at the University of Maryland- College Park. We each have a different background along with different skills to create a well-rounded team. We discovered Bubble through previous users that recommended it to us.
Why did you build your app on Bubble?
We decided to use Bubble to build our app because we found it to fit our needs perfectly in what we were looking for on our website. Bubble made it very simple and efficient to add very specific features and easy to collaborate.
What have been your milestones or successes so far?
On our first day of launch, we reached 150 users and are continuing to expand. We have also been promoted on our campus bulletin board, which is run by the Do Good Institute, which is partnered with the University of Maryland's School of Public Policy.
What are your future plans for your app?
Classify hopes to spread its reach to universities across the country. We want to replace the outdated methods used to interact with your classmates, especially for incoming freshmen. Our goal in the future is to partner with these universities to make a large campus seem small.
