Difficulty revising &
Inaccessible revision techniques
The problems we are trying to solve are...
How can I revise?
What techniques should I use?
Students often fail to revise due to the time consumed doing it;
therefore the app includes a feature that allows people to share
Key insight statements
Flash Revision is an app in which you can share revision tips and ideas on a dedicated ‘wall’. There are basic
revision tips preloaded on the app, we will produce surveys for students in the school to complete so we can have
a far greater idea of the students preferred methods of revision. The tips will be separated into subjects and
possibly different methods, so people can categorise their post so some one looking for french revision tips isn’t
having to search through tips unhelpful to them. Another function is the flash card maker, where you can
download or make your own your own flash card sets. It will also have an option to notify you of upcoming test.

then test themselves anywhere; users will then be able to share flashcards with others using the

MVP User Stories and Core feature
MVP user story: I will soon be having exams, and so I need to be able to revise quickly and
efficiently, without spending too much time preparing. I am also in a lot of sport clubs, and so
need to be able to revise on the move between them, but also when I am at home. This app
allows me to do all of those things.
MVP user story: I like to spend time making flashcards, as it helps me revise, and so I
have become quite good at using them to test me on the key parts of each topic. Because
of this, my friends would like to borrow the flashcards that I make, but I don’t want to give
them to my friends if it means I can’t revise from them because I don’t physically have
them. This app allows me to share my flashcards with my friends online, whilst still
allowing me to use them,
Data, Content and Technical feasibility
Data: We’ve learnt that if we want to allow people to share flashcards and revision tips, we will need to
have a registration process, probably linked with Facebook which would allow them to access our
service and look at the tips on the wall or any flashcards people have allowed everyone to see. All
public information (e.g public flashcards created by users) will be stored on the app’s servers.
Feasibility : We know this app is technically feasible as it is entirely possible to create an app which
allows people to enter Questions and answers, many apps already connect to facebook, and we should
be able to create servers for the app which store the information.
Content : The content has not been a key point in the development of the app as it is the users who
create most of it and share it with others.
Business case & customer
Business case: We are planning to allow the student access to methods of revision (e.g
flashcards) for maths, the sciences, history and a language of their choice when they first
download the app.
We will then charge £0.98 (including VAT) to unlock the ability to browse flashcards that
other people have made (but everyone can make their own flashcards for every subject when
they download the app-they just can’t see what other people have done).
We might also allow people to sell their own flashcards, and take a cut of the money they
We will reach our users by making all functions in the app as simple as possible (while still looking
professional) as we want the users to spend more time revising, and less time working out how the
app works. This should also therefore be cheap as we won’t need to implement lots of advanced
● We will make the app simple
● We will make sure all subjects have their place
in the app
● We will try and integrate any user feedback from
App Design Mock-up
[Anything else you want to share?]
We showed our app to a marketing expert, Rudi Sellers, who gave us the idea of selling
flashcards to the users of the app, and told us that we should market our app to parents, who are
likely to be the ones buying the app.
