Ed Maps is a project I undertook in my first semester of IT studies. At this point I had only had experience in developing using PHP so I chose to develop Ed Maps in PHP. My team and I did an analysis of the current market and education software aimed at primary schools and found an area that we believe would benefit from some further development. Ultimatly Ed Maps allows students to collaboratively create digital concept maps using mobile devices. During this project I analysed the education industry and mobile devices best practices. I also improved my PHP skill set and UI design. The project was very enjoyable and something I am still proud of. If I did this project again I would implement the service using a more loosely coupled API so that other platforms could easily interact with concept maps.
