Let’s face it. Working as a team is generally a whole lot easier than going it alone. Whether it helps us all generate more ideas or simply spurs us on that bit more - collaboration is where it’s at!
It’s a premise which is at the very core of our latest Startup of the Week.
Knodium is a collaboration platform for students enabling them to connect, engage and of course collaborate with each other. The best bit? Those students are from a whole range of different universities. No need to simply work through things with the students in your class; now you can engage with students from the opposite end of the country if you so choose.
In essence, Knodium enables users to create mini communities or ‘hubs’ around common interests, particular courses or specific projects. The hibs then become places where users can connect and collaborate with others - be it their peers, lecturers or simply interested people from the wider community.
The Knodium platform has been designed to make the collaboration process itself easy, to facilitate discussions and to enable discovering relevant and new content as simple as possible.
Admittedly there are a lot of startups in the edtech space but we reckon that Knodium are getting it right. A simple idea brilliantly executed. What’s not to love about that!
