Queen’s student develops app to promote peer-to-peer learning

October 28, 2013

Students at Queen’s University are developing an app that will allow students to provide real-time feedback to professors, as well as ask live questions, hold in-class discussions, and record lectures. The app, NPulse, was originally envisioned to allow students to rate professors, but developer Amin Nikdel said as they started “doing a great deal of research, [they] saw how much more [they] could add and how useful a product like this could become.” NPulse is a resource that can be used by both students and faculty, and is currently in trial with several Queen’s professors to allow for development and improvement before being launched.
