Developing a good product always involves intensive user research. So who are our users? Mastory has a diverse group of stakeholders, which makes the user research quite complex. Students and teachers are users, schools are customers, school committees or functional managers are influencers, and parents are further stakeholders. In this blogpost, we will focus on the user group of the teachers. We will talk about their needs and goals for teaching math and the possibility of using Mastory to support their teaching.
