7 mins read

Description: a mobile application for the university with news, a timetable and a  sign language dictionary.
Technologies: Strapi, React Native, Amazon S3, Sentry
Problem to be solved: Enabling the use of information for deaf applicants and students.

How It Started

One of the important aspects of public services is to adapt the service to the needs of people with disabilities, including deaf people. We were approached by a Polish university that had obtained EU funds to develop a mobile application adapted to the needs of deaf people.

How Design Thinking Helped Us

We conducted two workshops with the client in the design thinking methodology, during which we diagnosed the needs of both deaf students and the people providing services to these students (lecturers and administrative staff) During the workshop we also designed the functionality of the application.

Bringing Idea Into Life

We moved on to designing the interface, which had to be intuitive and modern. After the UX/UI design process, we presented the finished layout of the application and after the concept we started the programming work.

Efficient Development

All the programming work was divided into sprints, and between them we met with the university authorities for a Sprint Review presenting the different functionalities, analyzing their performance and improving the next versions of the application.

This is how the mobile application for applicants and students was created, which consists of three main elements:

  • a module of information about the university, the courses taught at the university and the lecturers, with the possibility of attaching a video with sign language translation to each piece of information,
  • a multimedia module of a sign language dictionary with an advanced search engine for words and phrases divided into categories,
  • a presentation module of the student's schedule, updated in real time.
