How does uQualio® match the 11 items listed by John Faig in 11 Things I Wish Ed Tech Developers Knew (http://www.litandtech.com/2019/05/11-things-i-wish-ed-tech-developers-knew.html)?
John Faig wrote this blog post on what EdTech companies must take into consideration for their users – the teachers. I believe he comes with valid points, which we and our colleagues in the EdTech learning space must address and consider for future releases of our products.
uQualio® is a video-based e-Learning platform. We do not fall quite into the traditional Learning Management System (LMS) category as we have the view that it must be simple for content creators, teachers, assistants and users.
Here’s John’s list and how uQualio® fits his requests. Remember to read his blog post first – and then check each point below to see how we fit.
2. Schedule changes
3. Student needs
5. Student data
6. Share content
7. Schedule in advance
8. Make it look nice
9. Start with simple trial
11. Ask for feedback
Addressing John’s points is a good exercise when you have an EdTech application. We can see that we’re doing good on several of the points, but that we can improve on the others. Now we have specific action items to work. This improves how uQualio® works and how it is viewed by potential users.
I suggest that other EdTech companies try to go through the same exercise. This has helped me line up a number of changes to the coming releases as well as how to prioritize some of the features further down the backlog.
Please let me know what you think and if you are ready to try the same with the 11 things John Faig lists in his blog.
