The ADL (Advanced Distributed Learning) Initiative’s third annual Learning App Challenge is now accepting nominations. This year, app developers are invited to submit mobile learning apps designed to support education, training or performance. The targeted learners can be adults or students in grades K-12.
The objective of the Challenge is for contestants to create an app that will help students/learners acquire knowledge and understanding by manipulating tasks, simulations, or situations that require students to critically evaluate what they are learning.
Winners will be based on:
(1) how well the app provides a learning solution to a stated problem;
(2) technical quality; and
(3) user experience and usability. Extra points will be awarded to apps that integrate with an existing ADL project, capability or research focus.
Submission deadline is Sept. 2, 2014. There is no cost for entering.
