Ticku case study: an app for online education

Ticku case study shows how our serverless approach made us capable of delivering an MVP of an online education platform in just 1 month.

The answer to a pandemic challenge

The COVID-19 pandemic heavily influenced our lives, and therefore also the way we receive education. It resulted in teachers and students having trouble adapting to online classes quickly.

Ticku wanted to solve this issue by delivering an online education platform that was easy to use and highly productive for both the students and the teachers.’s approach
to the challenge


Ticku found a great development partner in We instantly understood the vision Ticku had and were given full responsibility for building and designing the online education platform that could help teachers educate their students online.

The team from started with ideation activities by conducting desk and user research to learn about teachers and pupils’ pains and needs. From the feedback we gathered, we started the product design phase, testing the first prototypes with teachers that volunteered.

A serverless solution
to the rescue


Because of the rapidly changing circumstances, we used off-the-shelf solutions, components and libraries where possible.

Our biggest time-saver was using Firebase –a serverless platform that lets you run a backend code in a managed environment. Therefore, there was no need to manage and scale servers on your own. We saved several weeks and, at the same time made sure that the app hosting, storage and user authentication ran smoothly and securely.

The Ticku solution


The web app for teachers allows them to create exercises and tests in a digital form and check them in a matter of minutes.  

The mobile app for students allows them to practice on smartphones or tablets, solve exercises and testsMoreover, parents get easy access to all tests and homework 

The team also made sure that the app could be used long after the pandemic was over. How? The app is a digital copy of the “paper” workflow used by teachers worldwide. Thus, it can simply digitise the classroom activities such as tests or handing in homework and reduce paper use.
