Providing a new and modern way to improve students writing, vocabulary and creativity.
SoundsWriter is an on-line teaching tool which combines text and sounds to make learning fun. Students are able to login, record, edit and enhance their voice using the fully online tool, with hundreds of sound effects. Teachers are able to review and utilise a huge collection of exemplars to aid in their teaching. SoundsWriter gives teachers the ability to review and give feedback on their students recordings.
I've built SoundsWriter from the ground up alongside the founder. Through this I've been able to architect the system, and overcome technical challenges allowing dozens of users to access the tool at once, and storing large volumes of recording data.
