TOP QX – Everyone can Learn Anytime Anywhere

Cnotinfor has developed educational software for Windows and MAC (and more recently for iOS) that is normally installed in the computer and stays there. This paradigm is getting exhausted face the ongoing and already occurred changes, in terms of hardware, including mobile devices, and in the way you access and interact with software and its content.

TOP QX project aims to respond to this problem by developing and adapting a set of frameworks and libraries that accelerate the development of a new generation of educational software that works transparently to the user on any platform (PC, smartphone, iPad, Mac), anytime, anywhere and in any language. It also has to maintain consistency and memory of past interactions using a virtual companion or tutor, taking advantage of the full potential of Web 2.0. However it should run even when Internet fails.
