LinkJoin is a website designed to help students and educators get to classes on time. Seth Raphael, a high school student and programmer, created LinkJoin to solve a problem that he noticed while in virtual school. “It’s hard to remember to join classes! While in school, I had short breaks of 7 minutes between each class, just enough time to become engrossed in another activity on the computer,” he says. “Once I realized the class had started, I had to frantically search through my google classrooms to find the right class link. So out of necessity, I created LinkJoin with one original purpose in mind: opening my classes automatically.”
Now, LinkJoin does even more to help. As well as automatically opening classes at the right times, it keeps the links organized, lets a student share meetings with others, has notetaking built into each link that you make, and even has the option to text reminders.
While many platforms like Zoom have made accommodations for students while in class, “none of them have implemented features directly aimed at helping students before their classes like auto-joining,” says Seth (pictured).
“This makes LinkJoin a unique product with the potential to transform how we keep track of and manage our classes and meetings.”
LinkJoin recently earned a Cool Tool Award (finalist) for “Best E-learning, Blended, Flipped, or Remote Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards 2022 from EdTech Digest. Learn more.
