With our project, we tried to encourage people to engage in philantropy by letting them create educational content for people in need. For many people, philantropy is an important thing, yet it is still very hard to motivate people to really start to help. We wanted to change this.
What it does
We have built a platform where common people sign up as teachers to provide educational content (e.g. videos, hand-written tutorials etc.) for motivated learners. These get special rewards after they've successfully completed a course, for example, people completing tutorials how to plant seeds would receive actual seeds as a reward.These gifts have two purposes: First, they motivate the student even further to strengthen their skills and second, they encourage teachers to donate important goods to their students.
