Since October, 2012 we have received over 40 submissions from different groups across the UBC community. Applications tackled a range of ideas from a course scheduling app, to an app to help you find study space, to a digital coach-trainer for athletes.
Our panel of judges deliberated all the submissions and choose the five finalists who will go on to the final round of judging on an event on March 11.
Below are the five finalists in no particular order:
Organizing and simplifying orientation for new students
Clear way for students to chart their degree path
Location-based social notes apps
Join us on March 11
Everyone is invited to come the final round of judging in a “Dragon’s Den” style event on March 11 at the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre. The event will also be broadcasted live via a Google Hangout.
More details will be announced soon.
In the meantime, explore and rate the proposals from the finalists as well as the submissions who did not make it. Feel free to leave some feedback to help the groups refine and improve on their ideas.
