Amplify Market

A marketplace solution to enable a shared learning experience for teachers and students.

Amplify was bringing a 1:1 tablet solution to schools with the hope to better connect teachers to students to technology. Teachers had lessons that they wanted to share with each other and approved applications to distribute to their students. How could we create a shared resource for teacher's content and celebrate the work they do every day?

I worked on visualizing our assignment model, support system, bringing a more playful elements to the experience, and created a content delivery system—Amplify Market.

An exploration into a home experience.

The tablet experience was perfect in the classroom, but was limited in terms of creating content every day.

The web was a solution we began to investigate to move away from building a native app experience and build a robust web-tool. This would help Amplify extend beyond a tablet solution and become more usable in more markets. These explorations would help spark a conversation among leadership to invest resources into a new content delivery system.

This internal concept led to the company investing in a full, market product experience.

At SXSW, Amplify proposed its first Amplify Market concept. We partnered with educational apps to bring on to the service and built relationships with trusted educational resources to curate lesson plans.

In order to give developers more control, the app developers have a portal to sign up, upload, and manage their apps inside the Amplify Market.
