SciPlay (a ScienceDirect app)

  • SciPlay is the award-winning app from Sydney Hackathon 2011 organized at University of Sydney. This app provides an exciting exercise to test your knowledge after reading a full-text article on ScienceDirect and sharing your achievements on Twitter. Based on your performance, you can gain XP and move up academic ranks from undergraduate student to Professor Emeritus and beyond. You can gain XP only once for each full-text article read. When the app is turned on, you will see two questions that are related to the article. When you select and submit your answers, the app will instantly return the results along with correct answers. As you move up the academic ranks by providing the correct answers, the rank is reflected in the progress bar of the app.
