Create your own educational mobile apps


qdex makes it easy to build custom mobile applications for iOS and Android. With our simple-to-use creation tool, you can go from a blank slate to a fully-functioning native mobile application in minutes. No development experience required.


the qdex workflow


Create your own content using a mix of XML and Lua Script in our authoring environment, qdex Create.


Publish your content to iOS and Android simultaneously with the push of a button. Your content is automatically optimized for every device.


Share your content with your students, who can interact with it immediately in our app player, qdex Play.


More than just elearning

qdex isn't just mobile friendly, it's mobile powered. We've designed qdex exclusively for mobile devices to let you harness the full extent of their computational power, allowing you to deliver content in a more engaging way than ever before.


Simulations with substance

Go beyond flash animations and pseudo simulations. With advanced mathematical solvers, communication streams, and hardware-accelerated graphics, qdex is a step above traditional eLearning platforms.


Hardware without the headache 

Remotely control any hardware with the tap of a button. Send commands, receive data, display the response. Our real-time communications tools make feedback control applications accessible. 



Enhance your Content

qdex makes it easy to create the apps that you need. With our authoring tool and dynamic approach to content creation, even the most inexperienced creators can develop feature-rich modules in a matter of minutes.


Do more in less time

qdex utilizes a robust scripting language called Lua to introduce customizability into applications. Lua supports most of the popular programming paradigms, allowing you to create large-scale cross-platform applications without hours of development time.


Say goodbye to slides

Dynamically alter lessons to suit your student's pace or skill level, jump between concepts with ease, and show/hide content based on user feedback. qdex gives you the flexibility to create content that moves the way you want it to.

Our Partners



Within a month it become apparent to us how versatile the qdex platform is... both post-secondary and high-school sectors indicate that the students are extremely happy and engaged with this platform and it is indeed a great tool for their active learning experience.

Executive Director, Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology



I assigned a civil undergraduate student who didn’t have much prior experience in programming to work on our mobile apps. In only a few weeks, he was able to come up with professional looking apps with the capacity to remotely control the lab equipment... I am very happy with the smooth learning curve of the platform.

[qdex] is particularly unique because it allows educational institutions to develop its own apps according to local language and own preferences, in terms of concepts to be covered and didactic approach.
