TutorMate: Online Literacy Program
Mobile application design & development, branding, web design
TutorMate is a browser-based application that connects kindergarten and first grade students with adult tutors across the country. Tutors sync screens with students to share in literacy-building activities like story reading, games, and onset-rime assessments.
Our team was charged with rebuilding the application from scratch with design needs for responsiveness, cross-browser compatibility, and a level of intuitiveness for both adults and children. The front-end interface was built with Ruby on Rails, jQuery, Websockets, and HTML5. The server stack included Ruby on Rails, Sidekiq, and Heroku.
