About the Project
U-Project (U Multi-touch Whiteboard) is an interactive app built for Digitaria International, headquartered in Luxembourg, company specializing in satellite telecommunications and multimedia software platforms. 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.
