The app contains the academic syllabus, academic & reference materials as eBooks & eLearning videos that could be accessed online. The app also enables students to do a self-assessment for every chapter and lecturers to create quizzes to the students where these are stored in a centralised database that generates measurable outcomes or Students Performance Reports.
