New Promo Video for Prodigi App on YouTube

Prodigi is a Flex 4 application I developed for Mangahigh.com, – a powerful games-based math elearning system that features more than 12,000 questions with hints and worked solutions. Prodigi is adaptive, and increases question difficulty based on student performance. Take a look at the promotional video MH recently released on YouTube.com:

Behind the scenes Prodigi also deals with the question authoring and auditing workflow and has enabled Manga High’s teachers to rapidly develop an extensive database of challenging Maths GCSE questions that students all over the UK (and soon the US) can use for revision and GCSE learning.
