Codebrahma helped Embibe in creating a gamified social portal that helps students prepare for the toughest exam in the world, the IIT-JEE
Embibe is one of the first companies to help students prepare for IIT-JEE online. They can invite their friends and compete with each other on test and get detailed analytics on how they performed.
We architected a realtime chat engine based on the pub sub protocol using Faye, an evented server in ruby. We built a modular gamification module that plugs into the application user events and the test score and provides rewards to the user.
The rails social network was designed with single test taking interface with no refresh whatsoever. This made is tremendously quick for the students to attempt multiple questions. We built an analytics engine, completely isolated from the system do the number cruching and we built some cool visualization to see the results.
The platform was created in a way to make learning fun. Gamification of learning is absolutely essential, specially when it comes to online learning. It is one of the most important factors contributing to completion as well as retention rates.
As the saying goes, you cant improve what you dont measure. Since Embibe is essentially a platform to help students improve their test taking ability and understanding for competitive exams – building a robust analytics platform was a necessity.
