Personal Learning Assistant

Develop a Personal Learning Assistant application which focuses on a persons learning style and progress. Therefore the application will facilitate the user’s learning progress by learning from the user’s mistake offering suggestion for improvement on that particular aspect and devise the lessons according to the user’s learning style.

For example some user’s prefer to learn once a week and some prefer to practice on a daily basis. Some users learn by taking tests and some users learn by practising individual lessons multiple times. The application will monitor these aspects and adapt the lessons accordingly.

Flashcards app

The idea behind this application is pretty simple: make an application that will help you make and use flashcards. Keep score of the cards you got right and provide a mechanism for creating flash cards. The challenge comes when you have to give the answer and verify it (via voice or text input; how much of the answer you got right would be a nice feature for complex answers).

Bonus: Automatically generate flashcards using semantic web technologies and also create and environment in which this game could be played collaboratively.

Kids Tablet

Develop a serious learning game for kids in which they can learn and test – in an interactive way – their knowledge in a selected subject area such as Math, English, Geography, History, etc. The results of the test can be reported to the parents. Consider multiple difficulty levels depending on the age of children and also a tablet interface for the game. Also take into considerations that some children learn in pairs.
