My main focus is on the technical development and deployment of the OppiaMobile learning platform:
OppiaMobile is an open source mobile learning platform from Digital Campus for delivering learning content, video and quizzes.

When a connection becomes available, tracking and quiz scores are sent back to the server for tutors, teachers and trainers to track the progress of their learners. Learners earn points and badges for completing activities and modules.
