New project: UK-wide, educational app store 'EDUKApp'Fridolin Wild, Thursday 23 February 2012 | Annotate
KMi was contracted by JISC to create EDUKApp, an educational, UK-wide app and widget store. EDUKApp will be both a repository and community site that focuses on collecting and promoting widgets and apps for learning and teaching. The first prototype of EDUKApp was presented at the JISC CETIS, that took place in Nottingham on Feb 22-23 under the motto: "The Future Just Happened? Technology Innovation in Universities and Colleges". KMi researchers Fridolin Wild, Lucas Anastasiou, and Alexander Mikroyannidis used the half-day workshop to introduce to attending academics, governmental-level education officials, researchers, and software evangelists into personal learning environments, widgets, and the new store - with positive reviews and feedback.
