6 ultimate reasons to build your educational app with Setapp

Global investments in EdTech are on the rise. 24 percent more in 2017 than in 2016.

Smartphones and tablets are getting affordable. And more accessible.  

The use of VR and AR in education is gaining momentum.

1200 EdTech companies in the UK. Wait a second, isn't that supposed to be FinTech? Big brother a.k.a FinTech we’ll catch you soon!

Ok, so EdTech is rising and fast. As an entrepreneur in the educational space, you don’t want to be left out, do you? As an educational institute you want to embrace technology in learning, right? But…

But what?

You lack the technical know-how to build an educational app. Or, you can’t find a reliable partner who can build it the way you want.

Well, let me share some good news with you. In the next three minutes (or five if you happen to dig more into point 3) you will find a reliable partner who can build a top-notch educational app for you and your users.

And that partner is…

*drum rolls*

Setapp - The home of Significant Code

Ok, so let's look at those reasons for working with Setapp

1. You will have access to a wide array of technologies

It’s frustrating when you finally discover an idea for your next e-learning app, only to learn that you’re struggling to find a skilled dev team to build it.

Oops! There goes your next big idea down the drain. Or maybe not?

At Setapp, we are proud to have a vast pool of talented developers experienced with a wide range of technologies. You can count on us for Mobile, Web, VR, and AR development. Yes, all under the one roof! As tech consultants, our goal is to help you to choose the most suitable technology, which can bring value to your product and your users!

So, whether you're looking for developers to build a 3D mobile app to teach geometry to school kids or an engaging virtual reality experience that takes students to field trips to exotic places, at Setapp you will find a reliable partner for all your software outsourcing needs.

2. We have our own educational app

That’s right we have our own award-winning educational app called Shapes, which helps teachers to teach geometry to elementary and middle school students.

Developing Shapes has made us understand the importance of ‘impactful learning’ as an educational solution. At the end of the day that’s what matters, right?

Facts and stats about Shapes:

  • Over 22k downloads
  • Featured in the App Store as the "Best New App" in more than 100 countries
  • Won “Appward 2014” for Best Mobile Application
  • Digital Ehon Award Nomination
  • Featured on UK Ed Chat
  • Available for Android, iOS, Mac and windows and Samsung Galaxy

What’s next?

Michał Wróblewski, our head of VR/AR is currently working on an AR version of the app. We’ll let you know when it’s out.

3. Get quick feedback from teachers, student, and investors

At Setapp, we work in Scrum. Our agile software development methodology not only decreases the time to market of your product but also ensures faster feedback from the end users.

We will deliver a ‘working increment’ of your product at least once a month. This way, you can test it first with students and teachers to get valuable feedback for further development. You won’t waste precious time and money for features and functions which are not ‘useful’ for your users.

Did I say something about ‘saving money’? Your investors will thank you for this!

4. We are passionate about EdTech

Learn|Teach| Explore is our motto and we will keep it at the forefront while building your e-learning app.

We also write educational and highly curated articles about EdTech on our blog. Check out our most popular posts:

What else?

In the beginning of January, we launched The EdTech World on Medium. Our aim is to provide you with the most comprehensive, thoughtful and well-researched insights from the world of educational technology!

That’s not all, in October last year we organised a Significant Hackathon, dedicated to EdTech. We had the privilege to invite Olli Vallo from Kokoa Standard and Mateusz Bartos from SlideCase as our guest mentors!

5. Poland is a top outsourcing destination

Poland has some of the most talented developers in the world. According to Hacker Rank, Polish developers are behind only to China and Russia in third place. Considering the massive size of those two countries, achieving such a result is highly commendable.

Our company is based in Poznań. The city is strategically located in the middle of Europe (literally)! Cities like London, Stockholm, and Copenhagen are within one - three-hour flight to Poznań.

And Berlin? Well, just hop on a train at Berlin Hauptbahnhof and you’ll arrive comfortably in Poznań in less than three hours.

How do we support your career development in Setapp?

Everyone wants to develop their skills but there is more than one way to do it. That is why we at Setapp have decided to abandon the idea of a career path. It is unnecessary to force people to use the way which we (as a company) think is the best one.

Luckily we have found a reasonable solution. Twice a year every developer in our company has a meeting with a Scrum Master(SM) and a Team Leader(TL).

"The goal of the meeting is to establish the areas of development for the next few months."

Scrum Masters and Team Leaders are very helpful in that process because they are aware of the company’s long and short term plans so they can combine employees’ needs with the upcoming projects.

How does it work in practice?

development scenarios Setapp

Development scenarios at Setapp

 

You do not need to wait half a year to get some feedback. You get it during your everyday work, e.g. during team meetings or code reviews. If you feel that you would like to introduce any changes to your existing plans, you can also discuss it anytime with your TL or SM. Moreover, we provide tools which make gaining new skills easier.

Your development scenario should include tasks which are possible to fulfil during everyday work. But if you want to really push yourself, you can take part in a mentoring programme or English classes. What is more, you will always have a possibility to come back to your previous scenarios and check how much work you have already done. I bet you will be happy with the results of your work!

What is more, you will always have a possibility to come back to your previous scenarios and check how much work you have already done. I bet you will be happy with the results of your work!

If you want to join our team, you should know that when it comes to developers’ skills we focus on three areas. These are:

  1. Soft skills which enable you to communicate effectively with your team, as well as with a client.
  2. Technical skills which are directly responsible for the results of work of a team that you collaborate with
  3. English which is crucial when communicating with a client or your team
  4. Last but not least, it is very important for us how long you have worked with us. It shows your commitment to the company so the longer you work, the bigger influence on the company you have.

A team is a clue for success and more proofs for that you can find on our Facebook page.

Does it sound like a challenge for you? If yes, maybe Setapp is the right place to work for you!
