Developer, designer, leader
Ruby on Rails
It all started when we realised that nothing out there offered a full, interactive and modern learning experience for secondary school students.
This was a problem: particularly, many schools were now beginning to enact a 'one tablet per child' policy. It's the perfect opportunity for a fully fledged learning system.
Our idea was a collection of interactive questions and tests that gave you real-time feedback on your progress - all organised into subject, year, and level.
This way, you'd have the benefit of flashcards and spaced revision, without having to create any of the content yourself.
Multiple choice question
The puzzle mode below was designed to give more hands-on practice to writing essay-style answers, which are an important part of the state examinations.
Oisin was the other developer in the team - Filip and Kevin kindly created the content. The team was organised with Slack and the tasks were assigned with Trello. We used Git and Github as a VCS.
The project was built on Ruby on Rails and SASS, and was hosted on a Digital Ocean VPS which I managed.
