Publish your educational app/game

Do you have (or wish to develop) an Android app which teaches literacy/numeracy skills to children?

We are building a platform of educational apps and games that teaches a child to read, write and perform arithmetic fully autonomously and without the aid of a teacher. This will help bring literacy to the millions of children in developing countries who are currently out of school.

grade For each literacy and numeracy skill our machine learning algorithms detect the apps that are most effective at teaching the children. The best-performing apps are then automatically promoted.

Instrucciones

  1. Select one literacy/numeracy skill that your app/game will be teaching
  2. Create a new repository for the project on GitHub
  3. Upload the source code (we will perform code reviews of your pull requests)
  4. Add event tracking to the source code
  5. Add build and release instructions for generating APK files
  6. Once quality approved, we release the app and initiate usage data collection
  7. Analyze usage data and update the software as needed

If you have any questions, contact us at info@elimu.ai or via our chat room.

    We require all code to be licensed under the Apache License 2.0 or equivalent, creating a global public good available for anyone to use.

    We offer a content provider library that will automatically provide educational content matching the current skill level of each child.

  • What devices are being used?
    We are building our software for tablets with 5"-10" displays installed with Android API 21 (5.0) or higher.
