We chatted with Jerry Hsiang of Remote Quiz, about building a remote learning platform for K-12 users using Bubble's no-code visual web editor. Hsiang has extensive experience in finance and strategic leadership in healthcare. He discovered Bubble after acquiring Remote Quiz from James Wood, the Chief Product Officer at UserReplay. Hsiang is now in the process of expanding Remote Quiz's reach and turning it into the leading social learning platform.
Tell us about your app and what it does.
Remote Quiz is a social remote learning platform for K-12 learners. In essence, we make quizzing fun and interactive for young learners. After all, learning is way more productive when the students are having fun! Educators (both teachers and parents) can create their own quizzes and select from one of our pre-made templates, and they can also add their own image, select from our image library or GIF (from Giphy) to their questions. Educators can then share the quiz with their students and allow them to take this quiz in real-time via Google Hangout or Zoom.
How does your app work?
- Users can join the Remote Quiz platform for free.
- Users can either create a quiz from our pre-made templates (made by other users who want to publicize their content) or create their content
- Users can get together with their learners on Google Hangout or Zoom to play the quiz in real-time
- Users can see scores of each learner at the end, which allows them to optimize and customize their teaching lessons to focus on the areas of improvements for the K-12 learners.
Tell us a little about your background and how you discovered no-code tools like Bubble.
I have served in finance and strategy leadership positions across different companies and startups. In my most recent position, I serve as Chief Revenue Officer for Intiva Health, a healthcare provider credentialing SaaS for hospitals and clinics, as well as a Partner at Nova Vita Wellness Clinic. This upcoming healthcare clinic brand offers breakthrough treatments for depression, PTSD, mood disorders, and neuropathic pain through a ketamine IV infusion and other psychedelic drugs.
I came across Bubble from the acquisition of Remote Quiz - I acquired Remote Quiz in mid-2020 from James Wood. James currently serves in the capacity of Chief Product Officer at UserReplay. My goal is to revamp and rebuild the business model of Remote Quiz into one of the leading social learning platforms for K-12 learners.
Why did you build your app on Bubble?
Bubble is an easy to use no-code/low-code development platform with one of the most diverse communities. I was able to self-learn a lot of the capabilities through the Bubble community and the web in general in just a few short months. It also has a pretty diverse set of plugins that you can utilize to enhance your product.
What have been your milestones or successes so far?
Remote Quiz just crossed the 1,300 registered learners,100 registered educator accounts, and 16,000 questions answered. Our users are located all across the world in Australia, Canada, Japan, Mexico, United Kingdom, and the United States.
Remote Quiz has corporate accounts from the likes of:
- PwC (Big 4 accounting firm)
- CBRE Group (Largest commercial real estate service company in the world)
- Slalom Consulting (7,500+ employee management consulting company)
- Ogilvy Australia (One of the oldest marketing agencies in the world)
- Virgin Care (Private provider of publicly funded community health that service over 1 million patients per year)
- Kindred Group (Top global online gambling operators)
- Wessex Water (Water supply and sewerage utility company)
What are your future plans for your app?
The plan is to build Remote Quiz into the leading social learning platform, starting with K-12 learners then eventually venture into corporate employee social learning as well. Right now, in September 2020, I am working on onboarding a few sales team members (including one from Teach for America) and working with nonprofits and governmental organizations to provide our product for free to the families and young learners in need.
