PROJECT  Change the World Challenge

INSPIRATION

This idea came to me when I was sick in college and had to miss multiple days of classes. As I was struggling with stress under my blanket watching Youtube videos and Twitch channels, I thought to myself: “What if... I can attend my classes like this livestream, so that I can interact, participate, and learn from the comfort of being at home?”

TREND RESEARCH

LIVE-STREAMING ENTERTAINMENTS, EVENTS, BUSINESS MEETINGS, CONFERENCES, ETC ARE ALL AVAILABLE TO ATTEND ONLINE. BUT TRADITIONAL COLLEGES ARE BEHIND IN THIS DIGITAL GENERATION.  

COMPETITOR ANALYSIS

Lowering the barrier of entry while not losing the quality of the education. Create a path of least resistance when it comes to gaining new information and knowledge.

The purpose of Nextgen is to create a system that delivers the quality and value of a traditional college degree program from well-recognized institutions with the accessibility and affordability that the current online degree programs and MOOC platforms provide.
