"Elimunater"

Michael Neumann

  The Elimunater leverages mobile telephones to make educational information accessible to the masses in an economical fashion via a text-based system. The primary use of the system will be to receive summaries of requested topics, including any important definitions, dates, equations, etc.  Users will also be able to request solutions to past national examinations, which students often use to study though they typically are unable to check their work since they do not have access to the answers.  Quizzes containing multiple choice, matching, fill-in-the-blank, and true false questions (all of which are typical on the national examinations), will also be available to the user simply by texting keywords (or by using a topic code based on testing categories).
