A mobile application named as “NexClass” has been created by two second-year IIT-Gandhinagar (IIT-Gn) students- Shashank Pareta and Abhishek Verma. This application is presumed to be of importance among IIT students as it informs them about their time-table as well as offers them a guide map to reach their classroom as per the schedule.
The students only need to remember their roll number and not the constantly changing timetable as with the new app will instantly tell about the class schedule and inform the cellphone’s owner about the next class, in time.
The mobile app also notifies about the classroom, direction, course name, etc.
Since the campus is spread in a large area and have numerous faculty, students often have a hard time in remembering the names of the classes, faculty member as well as their faces. And the size also makes the location of class difficult to remember. Hence, a decision of creating this helpful app arose, especially to help juniors and freshers who are about to join IIT-Gn in 2014, explained, Pareta, a student of mechanical engineering.
The other big feature of the app is that it works off-line as well and demands only 5 mb space in cellphones. The app is also designed to identify the roll numbers of second, third and fourth-year B Tech students as well as M Tech, M Sc and PhD programmes’ students in campus.
