As part of ICAN’s open days, several delegates were chosen by their courses’ respective Dons to represent the school in front of prospective future students. I was therefore chosen, as the first Web Design’s course honor student, to build an application, on my free time, that would showcase technologies learnt during my years following classes there.
I chose to build a collaborative whiteboard, encouraging visitors to go on the website (on their smartphones or using one of the school’s computers) and draw together, the main focus being creating a fun and memorable experience. Although I stayed near the computers to answer visitors’ questions, the website also had a pop-up with various information on the technologies it used for easy bookmarking.
Two years later, after I graduated and went to study computer science in a neighboring university, I was happy to learn from a junior at ICAN I had been the one convincing him to join the Web Design course.
