An academic application is a web, mobile, or desktop application used by students for schoolwork. Students use the app to access course resources and submit assignments. If an academic app includes features such as grades and transcripts, it will typically also include a dashboard for teachers to track student progress.
Academic apps are similar to productivity and personal development apps. Some of the most popular academic applications include Khan Academy, Coursera, and iTunes U.
The app should be able to display PDF similarly to how kindle displays Ebooks. It should also display figures and stables as a pop-up.
An academic app can grow by creating a strong brand that inspires users to share the app with their friends. Academic apps work best when they are integrated into a user's daily routine, such as a reading app that allows students to read and annotate a textbook on their phone. Academic apps should also be able to show users the value of the app through quantitative data about their learning progress.
An academic app may face legal and reputational risks related to academic integrity, the creation of a competitive environment, and copyright infringement. Before creating an academic app, you will want to conduct careful due diligence on the applicable laws in your jurisdiction. Academic apps should take great care to adhere to all applicable policies and guidelines for academic use. It is also recommended that academic apps require students to submit all source code for review before being awarded a grade.
