Homework Partner EdTech brand

Rationale to build an EdTech brand with a suite of mobile apps specifically aimed at making homework more fun and efficient

This document is still a work-in-progress. Further expansion and accompanying research is on-going.

Long-term developments or drivers that are shaping our world include (but not limited to):

  • Emerging markets and accompanying rise of their middle-class (specifically in Asia)
  • Rapid technology innovation creating a more mobile world

Homework Partner - Rationale


By the same reasoning as above, mobile apps specifically catering for the health-related needs of the elderly population (an aging global population is another, major driver) is another big growth area :-)

Initial mobile app suite

  • Homework Partner app [Pending...]
  • NotesTagger for Android: an intuitive tags-oriented note taking app with extensive semantic web integration (including Freebase and DBpedia articles, YouTube videos, and Flickr images).
  • NotesMapper for Android: a powerful semantic note taking app based on topic maps with extensive semantic web integration (not unlike NotesTagger's semantic web integration).

Freebase is an open data entity graph of people, places, and things. DBpedia is a crowd-sourced community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia.
