New College Durham

New College Durham approached us to create a pair of Social Case Study apps available for mobile on both iOS and Android - the main focus of the app centred around profiling current, prospective and alumni students and the ability to upload and share their own work with the NCD community.

New College Durham app on iPhone

The app creates a socially driven way for students to interactive review and comment on each others achievements and project work.

The key feature of the app allows students to upload work into their own personalised portfolio spaces –  which other students can then comment on, leaving feedback and ratings. Students are able to upload text, images, video and sound content directly via the app.

Non-students of the College can also download and use the app, however commenting and reviewing is currently restricted to current students. Another feature of the app allows users to search for specific articles.

Security and moderation are also key concerns with apps of this type. Staff members of New College Durham were granted permissions to access and moderate all content before it hits the front end of the app, which allows all published content to be relevant, and avoid conflict.

Unique Learning Experience

The app creates a unique experience of learning for students but with ease of use, as it concentrates on digital technology that students are already familiar with in their everyday lives.

An exciting chance to work on an app that would be used on a daily basis by both existing and prospecting students of New College Durham - a unique and different method of sharing soft skills when learning
