nagU is a contained social media space to support students meeting their goals and deadlines amid a world of instant distractions. Within nagU, anonymous students can form groups of three and support each other to meet their goals via the messaging. Students can move between groups and form groups freely. The idea is to use anonymous social influence via technology for positive effects on students’ lives. I will create nagU as a web site as well as an app.
For a full description and my pitch of nagU, please visit my Kickstarter campaign for nagU (and maybe make a pledge?). I also have just begun the website, nagu.ca which you can view here. Regardless of the Kickstarter campaign results, I will complete nagU as I think it can be really helpful to students in a world of new challenges. My main goal is social benefit, so crowdfunding will be the way for me. I plan to launch another Kickstarter campaign after I have created more complete proofs of concept as I have explained in my reflections for this project.
