The project is a fun, engaging, interactive phone app development designed to enhance immigrants, expats, and students’ cultural education. It began in September 2019 and is due for completion in September 2021. City Quiz and Walk project, coordinated by Learnmera, is in its final stages of development. In the scope of the project, extensive research on mobile phone apps and gamified education has been conducted, and the development of apps for Helsinki, Paris, Vilnius, Lisbon and Athens has been completed. Now the project has reached its final stage of external pilot testing for the mobile apps.
The fun to use gamified education value is unquestionable, and the quiz and quest questions are informative to the local and the visitor alike. The pilot testing ensures that the app experience is of high quality, glitch-free and unhindered by errors.
