Readphones

Listen, Learn, Anywhere

An app that brings the convenience of listening to music/podcasts to academic curriculum.

Key Problems

  • Inability to utilize time in between classes and during commute
  • Accommodating curriculum for people living with visual disabilities
  • Reading becoming less prevalent

Marketing

Health Centric App

  • Tackling the unhealthy practice of sitting all day to learn
  • Movement = Brain Fuel: Learning on the Go Takes You Places

Accommodating those Living with Disabilities

  • Section 504: Requires for needs of students with disabilities to be met as adequately as the needs of the non-disabled students

Seamless integration Into Schools

  • Using as platform for professors and students to put existing lectures
  • Learning When You Normally Wouldn’t
  • Amount of people listening to music while driving/walking vs. reading a textbook
