Research and publication

The WiWiNow app was developed on the basis of a scientific study on the design requirements of mobile tools to reduce problems during the "transition-in" phase of first-year students. Following on from this, studies are investigating in particular the effects of app use on learning success. As a result of using the app, positive implications for exam success were identified. In addition to improved academic performance, the research also reveals support for first-year students as they settle into their degree program.
