Clickr | Student Response System for Schools
A student response system for schools designed to motivate.

The system enables teachers to give oral grades based on the response data rather than a gut feeling. Teachers also spend less time taking notes on student participation after or during each lesson.

For students, the system encourages engagement—enabling them to immediately see how their oral grade improves and continuously reflect on their participation.

Clickr | Student Response System
A Phoenix LiveView (Elixir)-based app that tracks in-class student participation via wireless Zigbee buttons. Its features include the following:

• A LiveView-powered live in-class dashboard.
• CQRS/ES using a commanded library.
• A Zigbee connector that pushes events from the classroom to the cloud app with a lightweight Elixir app on Raspberry Pi.
• Tailwind CSS and Alpine.js deployed to with a GitLab CI/CD pipeline.
