The original iOS app was developed in the 2011-12 academic year at Miami University by Dr. Douglas Troy’s CSE Capstone class. Student programmers were Brandon Carter, Alexi Chow, Sean Hannon, and Brian Thuma. The Myaamia Center partnered with Dr. Troy and his students to produce this wonderful tool for Myaamia language learners.

In 2013, another one of Dr. Troy’s capstone classes worked with the Myaamia Center to update the app and create an Android OS version.  Dave Greiner and Burt Haworth were the student programmers who successfully completed this project.  They also created a tool that can be used by other groups working in language revitalization to remove Myaamia language resources and insert other language resources.
