Experience Design Group is dedicated to delivering high quality educational applications based on research.
Everything we design is focused on the users needs

We are a small startup from Purdue University. We developed Literacy Labels by researching instructional needs for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Literacy Labels was designed to improve comprehension through word recognition skills. We implemented a pedogogy that is active and engaging to improve time on task. The app uses printed labels with QR codes to engage the user in a hunt and find journey towards word learning.

We believe that the users will always dictate the success of a product. That is why all our products started with a deep understanding of the users needs and goals. Armed with strong data we design applications to provide necessary instruction in a fun and interactive way. No one sits around to play our apps! ENGAGE and MOVE and LEARN!
