Why are we using node.js?
Is there another reason for a node.js server?

I think Eric is right.. I mean, in this particular scenario: wouldn't it be much easier to do this with just some easy ajax request via jQuery or something like that? Or is it because we want to have our own profile pages with URLs? In this case, wouldn't it be cooler to create our own i.e. mongodb database to reach the data of the students? some example students?
