The idea of my venture is based on my experience at the workplace where iPad programs had been used at the start of the school year. The senior professors could not figure out the pointer-sliding action to turn on the devices. There is an obvious gap in faculty members’ technological skills and knowledge. The strengths in my proposal are: 1) ideas are based on my experiences, 2) market and academic research support the lack of sufficient professional development to improve digital skills for higher education professionals, 3) having multilingual services for wider markets. In my research, there was no proven data that illustrated the comparison of degree in the digital skills gap by countries, yet my hypothesis was that the gaps in some non-Western countries are wider than that of the Western countries because many of the educational technological development so far has been Western driven. The future of BridgET carries the hope that building a bridge between the digital divide amongst educators in the global world. This will bring about positive change.
The weakness would be mainly in the accuracy of provision of the revenue in the future. The venture team does not have experience in business management, and the financial management would be the most difficult task for us.
