Wikiconnect is a collaborative learning tool. Its a plugin on a browser, with a backend on the cloud, that keeps a track of the website the user is on. When the user enters a website that has a content registered with us, our plugin on the toolbar lights up a bit. When the user spends a little longer time on it, it becomes brighter, indicating that the one might find co-learners if interested. In addition, we provide a toolbar in the wikiwindow, with a bunch of tools for the users to collaborate quickly. The objective is to co-learn, breaking the silo, and learn in a manner which is clear, quicker, and more involvement.
‘Book Pool’ in its essence, is an online community to share used books. A user lists books that he/she is willing to part with, on our website. When another user or an NGO is interested in any of your listed books, we pick up the books from you and award you a credit point for each book. Using credit points, you get to claim a book from the online pool of our books for your earned points.
For every book you give, you earn a point and use a point to buy another one. You also build your karma by doing a great deal of social good as they reach the books starved rural India.
