Electronic Flash Cards
Proposer: Audrey Mbogho
Brief Description: The objective of this project is to create a set of mathematics study aids to run on a hand-held device. Flash cards are a tried and true learning method. Implementing these in software should provide additional benefits, such as interactivity, recall, variation, progress assessment and rewards. The project will be deemed successful if scores on maths tests improve and if users find the application to be enjoyable to use.
Computer Science Content: Human computer interaction, educational technology, software development.
Specific Learning Outcomes:
Application development: Students will learn how to create a real world application and also how to program hand-held devices.
HCI: Students will be exposed to the research methodologies used in HCI.
Skills Required by Team as a Whole:
Theory: Human computer interaction
Implementation: A fairly disciplined software development process will be applied.
Facilities needed: Hand-held devices
Supervision: Primary supervisor, Audrey Mbogho, will guide software development, and the client, Stephen Gottlieb, will provide external co-supervision.
Number of Students: 2
