The organisation of a virtual hackathon event requires the use of online tools and a centralised platform that will enable tutors to structure and conduct a successful virtual hackathon event and participants to participate and collaborate in this virtual hackathon event remotely.
The Virtual Hackathon Platform provides the online tools and the online platform for the creation of a “virtual hackathon event” environment that will host the actual virtual/hybrid hackathon event and enable its smooth realisation. Through this environment, the tutors will be able to create their virtual hackathon events and set its properties according to their needs, monitor their events and make any adjustments that are appropriate during the duration of the event, while participants will be able to view information about the events and register to events they are interested in;
- providing their information,
- be divided into groups,
- collaborate with each other during the event,
- submit their projects,
- evaluate other's participants projects
As all these crucial steps of a virtual hackathon event require some preparatory work to be performed before the event actually takes place, the organisers (e.g. tutors) of the event have now a friendly platform in their arsenal.
