The goal is to create an team chat application that enables people to create online chatrooms wher they can invite other people and communicate through them via messages and video/audio calls. Students can use this application to learn the fundementals about computer networks and real-time communication protocols with sockets. This application can of course also be used as a communication tool for online education activities.

Learning Objectives

Learn about the basics about how REST APIs work in combination with websockets and the WebRTC standard to provide a real-time communication platform by using the team-chat app.


This activity is inspired by the creation of our Team Chat application for the "Advanced Software Development",which can be used as a means to offer interactive online education.
