ECPI Student Helps Build Mobile App for Teachers

ECPI University student Brad Nicholson was among a select group of students invited to participate in Dominion Enterprises’ most recent Hackathon, an intense two-day app development competition that assembles teams of software programmers, graphic designers, product developers and students to channel their creative energies into mobile applications aimed at learning.

With support from the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) and The Learning Registry, the event produced an array of new applications designed for schools and teachers, all of which have been made publicly available to foster ongoing development within the open-source community, DOE, and school systems nationwide. Among the 10 groups of competitors, Brad’s team – The Leftovers – created an app that National Geographic is expecting to put into immediate use as data collection and retrieval tool.
