Lit Learning

The aim of this application is to provide students with different methods for studying and learning so they have a better understanding of what works for them. The app will include learning theories, tips and walkthrough demonstrations to give its users all the help needed to succeed in their studies. We know from psychology that everyone learns differently. With this in mind, the main aim for this app is to educate students on the different methods to learn.

Project Description

Lit Learning is an interactive app designed with the purpose of educating students about different learning theories and learning methods in relation to specific subjects. The subject developed mostly in this app is statistics in psychology. There are descriptions of the different theorists and the theories these theorists contributed to the world. The app also contains different tips for studying some of which were derived from scientific articles that students can try out and see which ones are suited to them.

Project Findings

The main findings were discovering the different methods of learning and the theorists that developed these theories. We developed a survey to investigate the main subject psychology students struggled with and it was noted that statistics was by far the area the students found most difficult. We therefor tailored our prototype around statistics, in particular ANOVA’s.
