Last fall we launched our second nation-wide coding contest for students aptly titled The Pearson Coding Contest. After reviewing over a hundred submissions from nearly 70 universities, three candidates were selected to demo their app at the eCollege office in Denver, Colorado.
Ultimately Alex Ngure's student collaboration app CrowdLearn was selected as the first place winner of the contest. Alex was recently featured on Minnesota's local NBC new outlet to discuss the application. Read the full feature here.
Great work Alex!
