CovLab Global II: EduTech

The goal of the hackathon is to improve the online education experience of students who have been impacted by the global pandemic.


As COVID-19 swept around the world, the learning experiences of millions of students around the world has been forever changed. While COVID has negatively impacted many students, our goal at CovLab Global II: EduTech is to improve the learning experience of these students in the new situation we're presented with: online education

CovLab Global II: EduTech is a 6-day long online hackathon from August 20th to August 25th with the goal of improving the online education experience of students who have been impacted by the global pandemic. Anything that you come up with is welcome! We're all working together to achieve a common goal :)

Founded by Pat Ging and Chris Dou, we hope to inspire others to come together and create impactful solutions to help people cope with the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.
