Abstract [en]

The language education company KEEWORDS provides games for language learning using physical decks of cards. The words in the language are shown on one side of the card, and the translation in another language on the other side of the card. Research has shown that this type of repetitive learning is effective for practicing vocabulary. We had an idea that KEEWORDS could expand their product line also to the app market. The goal of this project is to design a proposal to the Keewords company how their training method could be turned into a mobile app service. The goal of the designed app is to help educators teach students in a new and interesting way by providing them with a tool to create content, services, and training tools using new mobile technology. This project shows the process of designing this type of card training for smartphones. The design is not just for the language learning; rather it is a general design for learning different education material. The end result of this project is a proposal of a graphical user interface.
