Education & Learning Challenges

Online education websites and mobile apps have a far-reaching audience. There are applications that need to appeal to toddlers, portals designed for college students and adult learners, training apps and websites for new employees and everything in between. Despite the wide user base, there are some common challenges developers will find familiar, such as:

  • Authenticity: For some experiences, it’s vital to verify the user
  • Privacy and Security: When dealing with small children, privacy and security become even more important
  • Accessibility: Your website, mobile app or connected device needs to be usable by all learners and Section 508-compliant
  • Usability: Usability is particularly important - and particularly hard to gauge - when targeting younger children
  • Device Matrix: There are infinite device, operating system and version combinations to keep track of - and your website, mobile app or connected device needs to look good and work well on all of them
