Original concept: With the evolution of computers, playing a huge role in our community, we thought that merging technology with learning will be a great way to improve communication and collaboration on projects between students. We started with a Facebook group, providing updates and news concerning the university, courses, grades..., then expanded with Dropbox to provide online updates. Nowadays, we carry smartphones, devices that we rely on, not only to communicate, but to interact with rich contents, games and social medias. So why not integrate education with smartphones. So the idea of a mobile application started to emerge two years ago, and the development started in spring 2013. The application started to take place in late August, and was finalized in October.
