  • Expert Focus 4/14/11
    Expert Focus: There are many instances when we feel inefficient with our time spent writing because we may allocate 2 hours for writing but only actually write for 1 hour due to external interruptions. Design a solution that helps Stanford Undergrads focus on writing without any interruptions, such as Facebook, roommates, and text messages, for one entire hour.
  • These are three ways to find a solution to this expert focus…
  • App 1: Reduce physical & Mobile Distractions
    Smartphone app: An app that helps user reduces physical and mobile distractions. App will be designed to…
    Eliminate external distractions: Move user to location where external distractions are minimal.
    Eliminate internal distractions: Lockdown distracting apps on smartphone to decrease self-interruptions.
    Track productivity levels at locations: Keeps track of productivity levels at certain location points so that users may see where they are most productive, or most inefficient.

    There will also be a reminder alert function that will periodically prompt user to check-in. This is reveal how often users are actually writing, or doing something irrelevant. The reminder alert can be customized and adapted to users’ productivity levels.
