Through our collaboration with Britt Carr Interactive Learning, we are developing an online platform for teachers to create custom, game-like study apps for their students without needing to write code. The platform, called SmashFact, is accompanied by a mobile and desktop app that students download. Once students have the app on their device of choice, they import a unique activity code given to them by their teacher. This code imports the teachers' content into the students' app as a game made up of levels and multiple choice style questions. The students race against the clock for points, and proficiency to proceed to the next level.
We are testing our first, high-fidelity prototype and learning something new every day! I (Kelly) was interviewed about SmashFact for my undergraduate universities' quarterly publication. You can read the interview here or see the Issuu below (page 9).
