Develop a Homework Planner App Like Brainly

“Tech gives the quietest student a voice.” – Jerry Blumengarten.

Today, it is difficult to confine children with our own traditional methods of learning in the Google-owned era. We (as a parent, elder, or techno freak) should always remind ourselves that they have the most powerful weapon, “technology”, in their hands. The new generation is here to change the world with new-age technology. The impact of the internet is making learning more engaging. Getting homework done or sending children to school is no more a concern for parents.

The instant answer that comes to our mind when someone mentions an app that excels in homework solution is the app Brainly. Brainly is a stellar ed-tech startup that is recently making a buzz all around. It is a Poland-based app that managed to earn around $30 million funds and approximately 250 million active students. Now that’s quite a big number, isn’t it?

You, too, can make a safe move by investing in a startup that deals with the ed-tech industry or, say, homework app development because this industry is at fire literally. The industry is expected to raise $37.8 billion even in the pandemic year 2020. Looking at the current app-focused trend, it is pretty obvious that the track record will be on the upper side of the trajectory in the coming years.

The infusion of machine learning and Artificial Intelligence into educational apps has changed the game completely. The industry is becoming smarter, making educational learning fun, and engaging for the students.

Education App Development Strategy

So what distinguishes Brainly from other educational apps?


Unique Content Curation and Search filter:

Students highly rely on Brainly when they are jabbed in homework. The reason being, Brainly offers an “all-in-one” package, which means every piece of information is covered and accessible within the app. The students do not have to juggle between the Google tabs in order to get the answer.

Brainly’s content is well-curated and, more importantly, not scattered. Students have answers to their specific questions, which might help them in answering their homework. Right answers available at the right time allows students to accomplish their work on time without getting distracted by diverse answers.

In this application, the student makes a search query, and obtains results for the same. Using the filter option, students can directly land upon the answering page.

If you are planning to build an on-demand homework planner app like Brainly, you too can take the help of machine learning technology and curate question specific answers for the students. However, make sure you describe your project goal and scope precisely in the Lean Canvas model and Product Requirement Document in advance. This will keep you focused and help you work in the goal direction only.

Instant answers to the questions:

This might look like a repetition, but Brainly definitely outshines when it comes to getting answers to homework questions. Both students, as well as teachers, can register the app and have access to the answers. The application’s moderators check and optimize every single answer received from the students. This is done to ensure that correct and relevant information only gets posted over the application.

Additionally, the app Brainly allows answer posting without any word limit. You can add a photo (if required) to justify your answer better. Hence, if you are planning to make an app like Brainly, make sure that you decide on this feature at the UI/UX designing stage.

“All-in-one” app (covers all major subjects):

As mentioned in the Brainly app description above, it provides solutions to all the subjects, including Maths, English, History, Arts, World languages, etc. Not just that, students from every level or students appearing for exams like SAT and PSAT can refer to the app for a solution. Brainly is a perfect example for entrepreneurs looking for on-demand app development in the education industry.

Sharing is earning (points):

Who doesn’t love gathering or, let me say, grabbing points on an app? Education app development like Brainly should allow students to earn points (rewards) for sharing their knowledge with fellow students. This is an engagement activity that you should integrate into the application to attract the students.

You can also include a few games or puzzles that assists students in getting their homework done. All these activities will hook the students to the app and indirectly impact the application’s ranking. You can explore more creative ideas for engagement by discussing your project with your prospective development company or the hired mobile app developers.

That all being said and written, there are some advanced features that you need to integrate into your educational app for making it exclusive.

Allow students to have a video chat with the teachers as well as mentors;

Design a specific section to include audio classes by experts;

Allow students to initiate a group message or a private message;

Students should be able to track the progress of the course they have undertaken;

Students/Users should be updated about any new offers or additions with a push notification feature.

Brainly app is for everyone. Hence, allow an enthused person who is willing to solve students’ academic problems to register & use the application at their convenience.

If you are wondering that all these development and feature additions might become a costly affair, then worry not.

Education App Development Strategy

However, as you go on adding advanced and complexity in design, the price will rise accordingly.
