Coding Rooms is an education platform for teaching computer programming. Switching to Daily helped the team streamline support processes, win back customers, and drastically reduce ticket volume by 80%.
Coding Rooms’ learning platform is changing how computer programming is taught. Teachers can teach remote classes, chat one-on-one with students via embedded video chat, and share their screen with students, knowing everyone is gathered around the same code problem. The dashboard provides teachers access to each of their students’ code in real time, empowering them to be more responsive. Students find it easier to follow classes and benefit from better learning outcomes.
Coding Rooms initially integrated video using an open-source platform that's popular in the education space. Due to poor call quality and performance, "it ended up being unusable," CEO and cofounder Sasha Varlamov explained. “Every day we'd go in and there would be a list of support tickets complaining that video didn’t work." Troubleshooting the platform was time-consuming and involved querying XML files, burdening their technical resources.
When searching for a replacement, Coding Rooms evaluated several different APIs. Daily delivered the highest call quality in tests compared to competitors. Switching to Daily meant their support team could easily troubleshoot any issues that did arise, thanks to Daily's dashboard call log information, although support tickets went down by 80% "practically overnight."
Video rooms exist and stay the same when the class is empty. “A live classroom can be opened basically forever, and students can come in, teachers can come in at any time. It's always there.“
Teachers are able to share their screen so that they can present material.
Teachers using Coding Rooms are understandably concerned about student attendance. Thanks to Daily’s dashboard call logs and telemetry data, Coding Rooms’ support team can easily resolve customer enquiries, letting them know if their users experienced a technical issue.
Daily APIs make it easy, fast, and flexible for developers to build with video.
