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.
