What is the problem?

  • Learning online is hard to track
  • Bookmarks are hard to save and navigate
  • Quality content is difficult to find

What are the opportunities?

  • Collecting a history of quality content
  • Minimizing search-to-find time when researching or learning
  • Curating curriculums by crowd sourcing
  • Cultivating channels to the best content in the world in a trusted, honored location.

Who is the audience?

  • Self-motivated adults supplementing existing knowledge or discovering new knowledge
  • Students supplementing course curriculum
  • Teachers curating content for their students

How will SUCESS be judged?

  • Clear invitation to interact with the site
  • Simple, optional self curation tool
  • Continued use after initial collection
  • Relevant search results
  • Non-aggressive ads

What makes the experience compelling?

  • Visual collections (beauty)
  • User organization
  • Following the path of others
  • Helping others with struggles you’ve had

Competitors?

Voice?
