While we reused many systems from earlier projects, much of this site was built
from scratch. There are three main functions for Easy-A:
1. Rate & Review Teachers
There have been many times that we have had to take a class that was being taught
by two different teachers, of whom we did not know. So like flipping a coin we would
choose one and hope this teachers teaching style matched our learning style.
Easy-A allows you to get teacher ratings and information before you take a class.
This is also a great feedback system for those teachers, to see where they are excelling
and where improvement is needed. This is accomplished by other student ratings and
2. Sharing School Notes
Many students have a hard time taking notes, don’t have time, or maybe are
out of practice. Many schools already allow note taking for other students (such
as foreign students).
Easy-A helps compliment this process by providing a place to upload, rate, comment
and print out notes for class syllabuses, assignment sheets, study guides, cheat
sheets, papers, essays, book reports and lab examples for your class.
3. Class Reviews
As a full time student taking on a full load of 12-16 credits, it’s nice to
try to get an easy class into the mix. We just don’t know how difficult a
class will be until it’s too late. Easy-A allows you to see information about
a particular class before you enrol in that course. This is accomplished by other
student ratings and reviews on particular courses.
