Abstract [en]

Studies shows that students today have problems learning. We have developed an application to combat these issues. We call it Course Quizard and it targets university students that want to find an supplemental way to study. Users can play course specific quizzes against each other containing questions created by other users or automatic generated questions from course material. A small group of students tested the application and they feel the idea is valuable but would rather recommend it to a friend than play it themselves. Course Quizard has potential with future development which would make the application an excellent study alternative.

Abstract [sv]

Studier visar att dagens studenter har problem att lära sig. Vi har utvecklat en applikation för att motverka inlärningsproblemen. Applikationen kallar vi Course Quizard, en applikation som riktar sig till  universitetsstudenter som söker ytterligare sätt att studera. Användarna kan spela kursspecifika frågesporter mot varandra som innehåller frågor som skapats av andra användare eller automatiskt genererade från kursmaterialet. En liten grupp av studenter testade programmet och de anser att idén är värdefullt, men de skulle hellre rekommendera applikationen till en vän än att spela det själva. Med framtida utveckling har Course Quizard potential att bli ett utmärkt hjälpmedel för att lära sig kursmaterialet på ett ytterligare vis.
