Abstract: This poster presentation outlines the process of developing a smartphone application used as a resource for 1) the study of English pronunciation, and as 2) a data gathering tool for quantitative analysis of its users’ study habits. The presentation focuses on the rationale for the application, the factors considered in its design as well as the stages of development required for bringing the project to fruition. The presentation concludes by looking at how the application can be scaled to include other learning communities outside of the Japanese English as a foreign language (EFL) context.
