Abstract

We design, implement and evaluate performance of Exantas application which is compatible with Android Operating Systems Smartphone devices. As Exantas tool was able to show ancients travelers the correct route to follow we show that our application can help educational staff to improve their skills and evaluate on the fly how efficient is the educational style that they follow. Results can help teachers measure while teaching how much of the lessons content has been successfully absorbed by students and what are the topics that need further analysis or even a completely new explanation approach. As experiments show, Exantas is able to reduce teaching efforts and to reveal real lessons comprehension status since Teachers can make multiple Questions to all students and receive answers in seconds. Moreover, all answers are processed anonymously ensuring anonymity and integrity since students are not afraid to provide their actual answer.
