Abstract :

The use of Android apps has significantly increased over the past few years, making android the most accepted and trusted operating system for smart devices. According to a survey, in 2020, over 30.5 billion Android mobile apps were downloaded compared to merely 6 billion in 2016, which is quite noteworthy. People worldwide are also becoming habitual to the use of android apps such that they want everything to be available on their mobile devices. The authors have developed ‘E-College’ - an android-based mobile learning application that helps users grasp various programming languages like C++, Java, and Python and help them with their undergraduate computer engineering course curriculum-related resources. The proposed application allows the learner to access a particular programming language's tutorials and explains it with an example and the required code snippet. Using this application, users can also assess themselves by utilizing the provided quiz section, which has various questions. The proposed mobile application also has a recommendation system section that uses machine learning techniques to intelligently serve the most relevant and suitable content for each user. It considers the user's previous learnings on the application and suggests new and relevant learning content for that particular user. During the ongoing global pandemic situation, E-college application is the most effective way to learn and acquire technical skills without stepping out of their home and fraee of cost.
