Foreign Service seeks multi-language flashcard app

The State Department’s Foreign Service Institute (FSI) is looking to supplement its classroom and online language training with a multi-language flashcard application that is cross-compatible on most major desktop, laptop and mobile environments used by its technologically diverse student community.

Because the institute has found electronic flashcards to be the most used and effective supplemental language training tool, FSI said it wants a feature-rich, multiplatform flashcard solution that allows students to study from a variety of devices.

In a sources sought notice, FSI said it seeks an app that lets both student and instructor create and manipulate content across a wide variety of activity types in a trackable format.  The tools should also support:

  • A minimum of 40 foreign (non-English) languages
  • Up to 5,000 users
  • Windows PC, Mac, Android, iOS and HTML5-compatible browsers.
  • Tracking of learner progress
  • Synchronization across devices via Wi-Fi/Internet
  • Audio with native speaker/voice-recording
  • Online tech support

The RFI closing date is June 23, 2014.
