Development in progress

With the aim of steadily delivering to students various initiatives and various information for students to realize a student life that can only be experienced in Kyoto, the "Kyoto App for the City of Universities and the City of Students" is a "learning and attractiveness improvement unique to Kyoto" with the technical cooperation of Jordan Co., Ltd. The council (consisting of Kyoto City and the University Consortium Kyoto, etc.) started joint development in 2019.

(1) Recruitment of student project members

In order to make the developed app available to more students, we are looking for members who propose app functions from the student's perspective.
Members who think of apps for university students are divided into two teams to create app proposals unique to students who study and live in Kyoto.

* We are not currently recruiting.

(2) Student Project Members Kick-off Meeting

On July 10, 2019, a kick-off meeting was held by the app's student development project members.
We recruited student project members to incorporate students' perspectives and ideas in the development. In the future, 12 students will be divided into two teams to discuss the app's functions, design, and PR methods.
On this day, we held a kick-off meeting for the first time. There are various motivations for participating, such as "I want to create something by making use of my ideas" or "It seemed fun to do something with students from other universities", but members from various faculties and grades will work together to advance the project.


(3) Meeting with Student Project Members Jordan Corporation

On August 6, based on the responses to a questionnaire collected from 340 students, we held a brainstorming session with staff from Jordan Co., Ltd., a technical cooperation company.

Jordan explained the recent trends in apps (what functions, designs, and operability are mainstream, etc.), and how to improve the calendar function of the new app, the usability of My Page, and how much information can be enriched. How to make a design that is unique to Kyoto? What is the name and icon of the app? Use characters?? There was a lively exchange of opinions.

During the summer vacation period from August ~ September, full-day meetings are held every week to solidify the proposals of the student members. Even after today's meeting, students will gather individually and use apps such as Slack to continue discussions among members.


(4) Student project members: Courtesy call on the Mayor of Kyoto City

On the occasion of the release of the student app KYO-DENT, student project members paid a courtesy call on the mayor of Kyoto.

The student app "KYO-DENT", which we have developed with 11 student project members, will finally be officially released on March 26, 2020.

On Tuesday, March 24, student project team members gave a presentation to the mayor of Kyoto City on the features and functions of the app. The students explained to the mayor that they had developed the app with their own thoughts, such as "I want you to like Kyoto," "I want you to broaden your horizons from a lot of information," and "I want you to create your university life with friends from various universities."

The mayor of Kyoto City commented, "I am pleased to have an app that disseminates information to individual students, and Kyoto is a good place where students from various universities can work together and learn," and expressed his hope that the spread of the app will create active exchange and diverse learning.
