As the name suggest the Learner's hub is a place where people can come, learn share tutorials and answer questions for free and in return they can earn reputation and profit through advertising.
I'll make this document short and to the point so that you can have brief idea about the project and can suggest something to make it a better place.so the Basic idea goes like this
1) we are going to make a common platform where we can unit teachers across the globe can share there lectures/ tutorials either in written form or video etc and students can come and learn from those tutorials.
2)I know there are lot of different websites present at this time with the same idea but we are going to make it a bit different.
3) There is earning opportunity for teacher's and a student's on this website.
4) A teacher can earn some percentage of profit(say 50%) from his tutorials which was generated by advertisements, donation or premium users additionally he can earn profits from solving unsolved problems.Their will be no Limitations about the tutorial topics . The tutorials can be from different areas like Music, Maths , Arts , Science etc anything
5) A student can learn by the tutorials Posted by the teachers we can also organize live online classes for a group of students on student demand ( student can request classes from us and when we get around 10+ students asking for a same class than we can ask teachers if they can arrange a online class for them for this we will be charging the student for minimal fee for the class )
6) Students can upload their lecture notes and Tutorials (It can be handwritten notes which he'll upload by scanning or taking pictures from his Mobile phone/camera). The Notes will be saved on our cloud which provides security and safety for the notes to the students. Additionally a student can share his/her notes with his/her classmates or fellow's or group members by inviting them to view the notes . Today we are minimizing the use of papers and physical notes with virtual/electronic notes. Using this facility a student can learn anywhere (even in trains , picnic etc ) by using his tab or mobile phone or laptops. We will share profits generated by these notes with the students (Learning Opportunity)
7) When a student will face some problem (for example maths problems ) He can just upload those problems instantly using his mobile phone by taking picture or typing the problem
after uploading the problem he can invite his friends to solve the problem or even his whole group or class.
Whenever a student solves other students problem than we will add a point to his/her reputation which will create healthy competition among students. and after a specific threshold reputation payment we can award the student with some prize ( for example a ipod etc ) ( money will be generated using advertising and premium accounts)
8) if all the students fails to answer a question than the problem will be passed to teachers. When the teacher solve that question than 10 reputation point will be added to his profile which can be used to rank teachers according to who is best .
The whole system can generate healthy competition in teachers and students
if teachers are not able to solve a problem then that problem will become a open problem and we will place a bounty on that.
I.e. solve that problem and winn a prize.
for this complete system we have to make a website + phone and tab applications
users can watch videos from their phones and tabs
and can organize online classes and events.
I think we can include one more functionality to this project i.e. research groups
Students are the cheapest resources for companies and organizations
we can add research group option in our project. Accourding to the students reputations companies can get their small research work done by those students . Mostly targeted audience will be b.tech mtech, phd and other master degree students
they can get sponsered research projects.
