I have been working on a small side project for the last couple of months. Due to the current situation of the world, schools are closed, even in Sri Lanka many schools in Colombo are yet to open. And students rely on the internet to connect with teachers and learn their lessons.
So I was thinking of creating something that would help both teachers and students, a tool which will help the teachers to improve the way they teach over the internet.
So after thinking and searching for several days I thought about creating something where teachers can create lessons…

Credit cards, everyone hates to get a credit card bill at the end of the month. Before I got a credit card for myself, I was someone who thought credit cards are evil, and you should never own or use a credit card. I was someone who always paid by cash or with my debit card.
