Eduheap is a video platform where you can watch or publish educational videos of almost all categories. You can connect and collaborate with other people who are or have watched the same videos as you. You can also live chat with other people on Eduheap. Eduheap brings videos from many sources to one single, centralized destination so you wouldn't have to search for individual videos. Eduheap now has a database of almost 17,000 videos which is growing every passing day.
The application will be a WPF application built using C# and XAML.
Eduheap was a project meant to facilitate education. There are many features in eduheap that you won't find elsewhere. Its free and will always remain free. Eduheap's website, android app, metro app are all complete. What's remaining are Windows Phone 7 and WPF application.
