Website Idea Need Feedback
Been a long time since I posted but I need the genius minds of newschoolers. Would you use a website like Khan Academy if it let you video chat with other users who are trying to learn the same material as you? The idea is to collaborate and learn the material together making it easier and more fun. For those of you who don't use Khan Academy it's an educational site that has academic tutorials on practically everything. Most people I ask say yes but I haven't yet posed this to a larger audience, your feedback is really appreciated!
It's an interesting idea however the biggest issue I think you will find is actually having enough people to actually match together, especially for more specialized and specific topics. If people have to wait forever just to find someone to work with they probably won't come back.
Also you'll need a system for moderation, video chat filled with school kids? You're going to attract some weird cunts so you need a way to find them and ban them.
Lastly you'll need to make sure the site doesn't just turn into people trying to get other people to do their homework.
