QR Quest

Participate in exciting scavenger hunts by following clues to hidden QR codes. Once a code is found, participants scan the QR code with the app to save their progress. At the end of the scavenger hunt, participants submit their work to the hunt organizer.

I developed this app as part of a mobilization grant for education and created the scavenger hunt to give students the opportunity to use technology to learn outside of the traditional classroom.

Watchalearning

Watchalearning is an iOS application I built for the D2L Edge Challenge that uses streaming video and chat functionality to facilitate learning. The main screen of the application shows a title, release date, and thumbnail image for each video in the series. Tapping on a video thumbnail plays the video in a full screen media player. Users can also collaborate with other classmates using the built-in chat feature. Simply tap the Chat button in the navigation bar to get started.

D2L App

The app gives users easy access to information on using Desire2Learn’s most popular tools. Simply choose a tool from the topics list to learn more about it. Enter your organization’s support contact information on the Preferences tab and quickly call or email any time you need additional help by shaking your device!

I first released the D2L Quick Reference iOS application in February 2011. Over a three-year time period, the app was downloaded thousands of times and maintained a 4+ rating in the app store. However, I decided to stop development of the app in 2014 and focus on other projects. Thanks to everyone who used the app and made it a success!

Customer Reviews

This is a very helpful quick reference app for faculty using tools in the D2L Learning Environment. There are simple to follow step-by-step instructions for most of the tools that are used in the system. And the price is right!

This is an awesome app. Kudos to the developer. Directions are written in a clear and engaging manner. Faculty should be able to follow as they develop materials inside their D2L course shells.

UTFCU Mobile App

The UTFCU mobile application was one of the first credit union apps in the iTunes store and allowed members to keep up with news items and social media, contact branches, and locate ATMs. The app was removed form the store in 2010 when a cross-platform product was introduced by the institution.
