The Interactive Home Tutor's main objective is to provide a collaborative studying environment between student, tutor and parents through the use of mobile devices such as smart phones. Students, especially high school students do not know how to manage their studies well and fail to totally utilize learning outside school hours. Learning is only constrained to school and materials they can access online through desktop computers. It is also hard for parents nowadays to properly monitor their children's progress and performance at tuition centers. First step in the methodology is to create a feasibility study on 50 high school students and 25 parents. The feasibility study is used to determine the features needed to be incorporated in the application itself. The initial design of the prototype is created through storyboarding. Prototypes are developed using the Android platform and fully utilizes the use of the cloud database. The proto typing is an iterative process that evolves according to the needs of the users. This model of development focuses on user's involvement during iterative prototype cycles in order to ensure the system is developed according to the users' needs and preferences. Usability testing is done with potential users of the system and feedback is used to consider the potential improvement to be done to the system in the future. It helps student study while being on the go and allows students to interact with tutors when having problems with their studies. The application also helps parents in keeping track of their children's progress in their studies. Parents are able to keep up to date with their children's studies through progress reports and short message service (SMS). Future steps would be to fully incorporate the cloud environment in mobile learning and analyze the effectiveness of the system.
