As the school year comes to a close we are proud to share that this spring approximately 1700 students have signed the Hack Harassment pledge at MLH hackathons across the country.
Join us in helping to keep the internet a safe and inclusive space by taking the Hack Harassment pledge today! Just keep scrolling to learn more about our favorite Hack Harassment projects from MLH events, you won’t want to miss this!
MLH #HackHarassment Project Highlights:
Project: Better RU – The Better RU team wanted to make navigating around essential Rutgers website tools easier. They wanted to have an easy way for students and professors to report cyber bullying, sexual harassment, drug abuse or any other issues they are aware of.
Team: Ali Helal, Alex Silva, and Kyuho Yi
Why We Like It: It’s a system for Rutgers students to anonymously report harassment that occurs within the school’s digital classroom services; making harassment easy to report and discuss is a really smart idea to help reduce it.
Project: SentiWatch – A tracking system for subconscious moods.
Team: Palak Modi, Christine Sun, Yvonne Chen, and Shraddha Ravishankar
Why We Like It: It monitors your mood based on posts, and detects your subconscious emotions. A good way to stay in touch with your emotions!
Project: Sentivents – A twitter user can run this analysis on themselves and see the personality they play online. A school district could take this analysis and run it against students and determine thoughts who may be cyberbullying or be depressed based on some of the analytical values. More features than twitter analytics.
Team: Henry Tang, Zachary Booth, Daniel Cole, and Tony Tran
Why We Like It: It measures sentiment on twitter and aims to be a tool for schools to see who is getting cyber bullied.
Time flies! This season will be wrapping up soon, but there are more #HackHarassment MLH projects to come over the next few weeks. If you’re participating, feel free to reach out to us on Twitter or Facebook and tell us about your Hack Harassment efforts!
