In today’s tech-savvy era, the range of mobile technology has successfully reached so far that buying things, booking tickets, ordering foods, doing banking activities – doing almost everything is possible using different mobile applications. An educational mobile application makes the process of information sharing between the students and the tutors easier. Sharing the study materials or the learning materials, sharing the upcoming major events like tests etc. become much easier using such educational apps. However, other than sharing information, an educational app can help the students to learn without a tutor as well. Here is a list of the things you should consider while developing a mobile application for educational purpose.
Intriguing Look and Design
When the learning process becomes engaging, interesting and interactive, it becomes effective and the students also feel interested. If you are thinking of devising an educational application for kids, you need to pay special attention to the look and design of the application. The more the User interface looks intriguing and encouraging, the more kids would love your application. Use of improved graphics, short animations etc. would make your app more interesting to the kids.
Use of Videos and Live Presentations
According to the study, when you give any information using the graphics format than using text blocks, a human brain can understand it faster. Keeping this information in mind, you need to include learning videos in your application so that the students can watch and learn in the free time. To enhance the process of learning, live presentations are very useful. Moreover, the students can pause, rewind the videos at any time. They can watch the video multiple times to understand something better. Thus, including videos and live presentations in an educational application would make it more effective.
Syllabus, Scheduling, Planning
Using such an educational app, students can easily access the entire course syllabus along with the clear goals of taking the course. Moreover, getting access to the different learning lessons and assignments related to that particular course become easier. Hence, you need to devise the app in such a way so that scheduling and planning for taking the course become headache-free for the students.
This private messaging feature is extremely useful when the students and the teachers want to share any particular information privately. For instance, if a teacher wants to ask any particular student about his or her last semester’s report, they can use this private messaging option. Hence, while developing an educational app, integrating this feature is crucial as well.
Before launching an educational app in the market, dedicated A/B app testing phase is extremely crucial. To make it more effective, for the beta testing phase, you can select a group of students to give their honest feedback after using the application. Their feedback would help you to make your application more engaging.
