Vargetex wants to make a difference in the education sector, by making use of current mobile technology. They approached Methys to develop an android application called Lightbulb that facilitates learning and sharing of information within schools on a local WIFI network.
A CMS and API wrapper was developed to provide the application with relevant data, give admins and teachers the ability to upload content, and push it to the students. Students can sync their devices within the WIFI network, create notes on specific content, and receive textbooks, messages and video from teachers. The app uses user management to maintain privacy.
This project is a great proof of concept of what can be achieved with mobile to help improve our education system. Methys are proud to be associated with this great initiative.
