Visionary thinking tech startups, professional developer agencies, and motivated innovators are invited to join us online for a 1.5-month Inkathon to build next-level ink apps for digital pen-enabled devices utilizing Wacom's WILL™ SDK.
The virtual Inkathon will result in a selection of apps that have the potential to revolutionize the EdTech community. These top teams (5 to 10) will be invited to attend the physical demo day in Tokyo, Japan on November 4, 2019. They will have the opportunity to demonstrate and pitch their idea and applications to a jury formed by thought leaders and key industry influencers.
Your challenge is to leverage Wacom's Ink Layer Language (WILL™) in an existing app (or new app) and unlock the potential of Digital Ink in Education Technology.
What can Digital Ink bring to the EdTech industry?
What can you do
with WILL™ SDK?
Wacom’s Ink Layer Language (WILL™) connects hardware, software and applications to give applications this ability and is compatible with Android, iOS and Windows:
Convert natural writing to digital ink data allowing for exchange and collaboration
Edit ink across apps, software and services
Enhance meaning through metadata
Create 3D inking applications in augmented and virtual reality environments
Handwriting promotes creativity, deeper understanding, and better information recall. It also contributes to the formative learning processes of reading, writing and spelling, the comprehension of meaning, memory, problem-solving and the use of imagination in artistic or creative tasks. Utilizing Wacom’s WILL™ technology allows you to develop applications for educational environments that combine the best features and benefits of both analog and digital practices in completely new ways. Digital Ink has the ability to empower both teachers and students to collaborate, share and elevate the learning process.
