JAMIYA VOCAPP

The Jamiya Project is collaborating with Empower Hack to build a prototype of the Jamiya VocApp: a mobile and web application to assist students Syrian starting courses in Europe in a second language (English, German and French) with learning relevant academic technical vocabulary through a peer-to-peer micro-learning platform. The platform will provide contextualised translation of terms Arabic<>English/German/French, online support from Syrian peers and Syrian academics, and an intuitive learning software to help speed students' transition into a new course in an unfamiliar language.
