An online research is usually just another way of saying that individuals are going to Google it on the internet. Not resisting the idea, California-based Edtwist has created a more collaborative environment where students can utilize the internet's usefulness.
It is hard to admit but when parents hear their children doing an online research, usually it just goes down to "Googling" up something through the World Wide Web. Having this in mind, Los Angeles startup firm Edtwist has made a learning-centered atmosphere for students and other researchers to collaborate ideas through the internet.
Chief Executive Officer and Edtwist founder Julie Lee spent an enormous amount of time working for companies like Universal Music and Vevo. Becoming a mother in 2007, she visualized an idea on how to improve learning and education, therefore led to Edtwist's creation.
Working on a research project either it be school or work related, individuals can utilize the share knowledge platform to search across sites like Wikipedia, Google, Yahoo, stream informative videos through YouTube and even use contents from the share knowledge platform itself. From there, people can create a thread or forum or message board where they can save all their research work and ideas that they have gathered through sharing.
Lee divulged that other content partnerships are in talks. From then on, researchers can utilize the site at a broader array and not just for saving links. Interestingly, studies get more exciting once individuals get to collaborate with other researchers via the message boards, enabling them to share ideas and points of view and even comment on ideas shared by fellow researchers.
One of the main goals that Lee is planning is to reach out through libraries and other knowledge networks by partnering with them. Despite the shift to digital reading, research and learning - creating a patented version of Edtwist is one way for libraries and books to stay relevant and reach out to many individuals as possible and making its resources available online.
