The Zzish platform helps developers make education apps more engaging and effective, lower costs and increase revenues.
The key component is a mobile backend-as-a-service (mbaas) platform that enables developers to add rich education features to their apps very easily saving them the costs of developing these backend features themselves. Such features include education app analytics (similar to Google Analytics or Flurry, but with a focus on measuring content engagement and learning effectiveness of the app), personal learning analytics (giving students, teachers and parents insight into their learning progress and performance), adaptive algorithms (for personalising learning experiences), gamification features (such as avatars, leaderboards and multiplayer game play) and making an app "classroom-ready" (such that it can be used in classrooms by teachers).
The consumer facing side of the Zzish platform is the Zzish Learning Center that lets students, teachers and parents collect and view data from all the apps that use the platform in one central place. It also acts as a distribution channel for education app developers to reach new users and lets students discover apps that are proven to be effective at helping them learn specific topics.
Rather than charge developers for the service, Zzish generates new revenue streams for educational app developers and then shares in the additional revenue they help create.
