About

This DCC Capstone project is a time management platform built on the existing Facebook Messenger platform which will simplify the life of a student by managing homework, projects, quizzes and exams, intelligently categorizing the daily workload of a student and advising students to budget time where it may not be obvious given upcoming build-ups of work from uncoordinated professors. This collected data will also be used to inform researchers on trends among student study habits, and send warnings to instructors who may want to reschedule exams or projects where high levels of other coursework may be preventing a student from properly putting time into their education.

About the Creator

My name is Sam Holmberg, a second year student at the University of Maryland, College Park studying computer science with an upper level concentration in art. I am part of the Design Cultures and Creativity Honors College. I made this to help students and peers manage their classes and homework at my university. I believe in creatively providing a solution to problems in ways that aren't intuitive and have not been done before. For this reason, I made Esay as my Capstone project which combines the fields of Education, Productivity, and Linguistics with my major: Computer Science.
