The U project is an educational application funded by EU institutions, like Lux Innovation and European Space Agency, to improve and explore new learning models (such as interactive multi-touch whiteboard) to teach sciences in Primary and Secondary School.
U project is focused on User, hence the name "U". The purpose of the app was to fill in the gaps of existing e-learning platforms. To make it happen, we created a software-hardware-networking platform that facilitates content distribution and teacher vs students interactions via Multi Touch Interactive Whiteboards supporting up to 10 touches simultaneously.
The scope of work involved a development of HTML5 app that provides teachers with the possibility to draw, sketch, import media like images and videos, and interact with them using multi-touch gestures.
