Teacheo

  1. 1. Teacheo<br />Case study<br />Giantommaso D’Astolto<br />NEST project<br />Alta ScuolaPolitecnica VII cycle<br />
  2. 2. What is it? <br />French on-line platform for tutoring<br />It is based on web conference lectures<br />It provides help for students from primary school to university<br />The idea is to create an “E-bay of knowledge”, where tutors can be reached even remotely<br />
  3. 3. Homepage<br />The homepage introduces the service to the web surfer, with sections concerning:<br /><ul><li>Pricing
  4. 4. System functionalities
  5. 5. Uploaded material
  6. 6. Teacher database</li></li></ul><li>How does it work? <br />Students can find teachers in a database, where they are rated on the basis of previous lessons<br />After scheduling an appointment (or contacting an available tutor) the lecture is given<br />Finally the student pays the fee and rates the experience for future users<br />
  7. 7. IT tools<br />Videoconferences<br /> and chats<br />for simultaneous<br /> interaction<br />Videoplayer<br />audioplayer<br />for uploaded lectures<br />Interactive whiteboards<br />With equation editor, graphs,<br /> 3D drawing, screen sharing, calculators<br />
  8. 8. Strengths/1 <br />Wide range of subjects, it covers all the needs for students starting from primary schools to university. This means that an user will find anything he/she needs and will less likely look for competitors<br />
  9. 9. Strengths/2 <br />Good use of feedback, teachers are rated by the students they help. A new member can always find information regarding teacher and have a clear idea of who to choose.<br />
  10. 10. Strengths/3 <br />There is no time box for lectures, students can use scheduling tools to arrange appointments with tutors and previous session are recorded in order to be watched again in the future.<br />
  11. 11. Weaknesses <br />The service is not assured 24/7, because there is need for tutor availability. <br />Moreover the availability of a tutor in a certain time depends on the amount of requests and available resources, therefore it is fundamental to choose the service capacity<br />
  12. 12. Business model <br />The service is on a pay-per-use base, each teacher has his/her own price per minute and you can choose the one that fits you the best <br />Teachers that want to sign up have to pay a certain fee, depending on how many functionalities they need and whether they want to use it for students they already know or not<br />
  13. 13. Conclusions and take-aways<br />The service creates a good opportunity for distance learning. <br />The tools are very sophisticated and offer a wide range of functionalities<br />There is possibility of scaling it down to a smaller community in order to substitute private lessons and maybe using it for a larger group of students at a time.<br />
