Abstract

The vast majority of the Canarian people do not know of the existence of Tamazight, a language spoken in North Africa in the area known as Tamazgha by the Amazigh people for thousands of years. it was also spoken by the Canarian aborigines in these North African islands. Furthermore, the existence of the Amazigh people, whose language and legacy was similar to that of the Canarian aborigines is also largely unknown. This is one of the main reasons for choosing Tamazight as content to teach / learn in the application developed in this work. Amsawal, which means dialogue in the same language. This work analyzes the creation of a virtual learning environment compatible with mobile devices and desktop environments. It is focused on the use of H5P to generate the interactive educational activities, all integrated in a gamified environment and with social tools. The use of WordPress is essential to fit all the pieces of the puzzle in one application.
