Happi Create: Coming this Fall!

Before diving into the company’s apps, I’d like to briefly discuss their most recent project set to launch this fall: Happi Create.  “Happi Create is a content crowdsourcing service where people create and subscribe to new levels for supported apps – all for free.”  In other words, it is a platform that allows you to develop your own educational app “in 5 minutes.”  From the information provided on the Happi Papi website discussing Happi Create, I believe this platform will be very useful for educators as they can quickly develop apps focused on specific core curriculum.

The blog on Happi Create lists how to use the platform:

  1. Decide what type of app you’d like to create by selecting one of the many App Designers available on Happi Create
  2. Begin by creating a box to put your content in.
    • Boxes within Happi Create will become levels in your app.
  3. Now you’re ready to begin adding your content.  “The App Designer will make sure everything looks top notch.  Tailor your content to meet your specific learning needs.”
  4. Once you’re finished entering content, simply activate your box and it’ll automatically appear within your app.
