In this paper we present an efficient multipurpose system capable of providing professors the ability to help students meet with them outside of class. Currently, should a student wish to schedule a meeting with a professor, they often have to initiate a long string of emails until a final date and time can be agreed upon. Additionally, professors have no way to simply broadcast messages to people visiting their office nor a way to take messages from those individuals should a professor be absent. Our solution aims to fix these issues through the use of several low-power, budgetfriendly devices. Our platform includes a touchscreen powered by a Raspberry Pi 3 which will function to display the professor’s public calendar and announcements. Additionally, a camera is used in order to perform face recognition to map students to accounts they create to interface with the system. Finally, we created a mobile app that will allow student and professor to communicate quickly in a way that abstracts their personal phone numbers.
