Because the lectures could be something
more than just listen.
Phones and other mobile devices are barely used in classrooms. In fact, they are more of a distraction than useful for learning purposes.
We came up with Haibu, a service that creates a second screen experience for classrooms and lectures. It is about what students and lecturers can do with their phones while there is a presentation going on.
Six Hyper Island students teamed up to research, come up with a idea, test it, produce designs and deliver the concept.

Imagine having a second screen experience not with a TV, but with a powerpoint-based lecture. A student is allowed to use her phone with a Haibu app, which receives a second screen information based on what happens on the first screen, where lecturer has his main presentation.
Students benefit from having an extra layer of content, have a way to ask questions and bookmark useful references along the lecture. And the lecturer has an ability to track the usage of Haibu app and draw attention when he needs it.
Finally, the lecture becomes truly interactive, involving students to contribute, ask and discuss, during or after class. We believe, this conversation has ability to push education to a new level.
Prototyping and User Research
To make sure Haibu will be accepted and enjoyed by people, we interviewed several lecturers and conducted a usability research with real students. We made wireframes for the app, filled them with the real content and then ran the presentation.
