Creating a Mobile Tool for
Adult learners


My Role

Mobile Developer at The Media Lab

Things I Did

\\ Programmed Regex for responses in Askii

Overview

I worked at the Lifelong Kindergarten lab at the MIT Media Lab during the Spring of 2015. I was a developer for a tool called Askii. Askii is a mobile learning tool that you can run through SMS, which allows people without smartphones to use it as well. Using SMS, Askii will start study sessions with the user, and let them study and take quizzes. Our example use case was a citizenship exam study tool for adult learners who study during their commute.

KEY TAKEAWAY: The method of accessing a tool is very important to keep in mind when designing something for users.
