The Social Networking
According to Tian, of the University of Science & Technology of China (Suzhou Campus) and A. Yu, D.Vogeland Chi-Wai Kwok of City University of Hong Kong, suggest that students’ online social networking directly influences social learning and can positively influence academic learning. In terms of learning, students reported that Facebook allowed them to connect with the faculty and other students in term of friendship/social relationship, provide comments to peers/share knowledge, share feelings with peers, join Groups established for subjects, collaboration: notification, discussion, course schedule, project management calendar and to use educational applications for organizing learning activities.
The team says that, “Facebook greatly influences college students’ social life and shows good potential in coping with the challenges that students face.” They conclude that, “Educational institutions may need to adopt active (but somewhat restrained) actions to utilize existing social network applications such as Facebook for education. Teaching activities will need to be appropriately designed for different target populations. The breakthrough point may start from students’ social learning.”(http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/05/110509091557.htm)
Edmodo Social Learning Platform
Based in San Mateo, California (USA), Edmodo was founded in 2008 by Nicolas Borg and Jeff O’Hara. It is considered as a social networking site (very similar to Facebook) for teachers and students.
It provides a secure and easy environment where pupils can share their content, and access several activities, evaluations and notices. Users can send and receive messages, discuss on forums and share digital resources such as videos, audios or images. All evaluations and grades are easily stored and accessible anytime. It can be accessible online and by mobile devices (including Android and iPhones). The platform is available in 6 languages including English, German, Greek, French, Spanish and Portuguese. In the first quarter of 2013, there were over 18.8 million people registered in over 90 countries. 85 of the largest US school districts have already chosen it.(http:www//edmodo.com)
According to Veletsianos and Navarrete of University of Texas at Austin, USA, the potential of social networking sites to contribute to educational endeavors is highlighted by researchers and practitioner’s alike, empirical evidence on the use of such sites for formal online learning is scant. The literature suggests that SNSs hold promise for online education. Nevertheless, considerable gaps exist in the empirical literature, especially with regards to what the student experience is like in these environments. A contributing factor to these gaps is the scarcity of studies reporting on the use of social networks in formal education, with Arnold and Paulus (2010).

Social and professional networking. For example, someone in instructional design might benefit from learning about new technologies and their pedagogical implications, while someone in marketing might benefit from learning the latest in Web analytics technology, and a new hire in registration would need to learn the systems and applications necessary to register World Campus students. There is a need for rapid and efficient communication between people in the various roles and in different status levels within the organization (the organization does maintain a loose hierarchy of workers typical of academic institutions.(http://sites.psu.edu/natalieharp/writings/proposal-a-social-learning-and-collaboration-platform)

This could be benefit android application user namely the pre-schooler who does not have the confidence in learning through this type of android software that performs interactive functions in a single interface. If an integration would cater mostly to the need of computer users. This software is interactive android learning software that shoes the basic learning needed of a person or student which will greatly help the user in learning in school and at home.

Online Examination in Trigonometry
According to Paradero, 2007.The online examination in Trigonometry with analytical Geometry of selected students at Central Colleges of the Philippines, during the academic year 2006 – 2007.It also focuses on the advantage of having an online examination, which is also stated in the objectives. Paradero stated in her study that constructing pencil and paper test is a professional skill. It takes study, time and practice to become proficient in it. An instructor needs to be familiar with the different types of test items and how to write them. But nowadays, educators do their research to update themselves son the current trends and issues in education, prepare their lessons, deliver or present in their classes, compute grades with the use of computers. Likewise, the computers are being used by some educators in administering examination. The online examination is a new approach in education. Today, many schools have considers the application of online examinations among its students.

With the help of these different related studies and literature about elearning application and other related systems, the researchers can have an additional idea in developing the proposed system. However, the study aims to develop an elearning platform for both web and mobile, based on the related studies; it serves as guidelines on how to develop a system with a better graphical design and functions that gives attraction most especially to the students.
