REVIEW: I thougth this a very strong, well put-together, and persuasive pitch. Regarding the problem, I agree that there are so many platforms and ways people can learn these days that it somewhat disarrays the learning and real and valuable experience may not be acknowledged. Zaffold offers a solution to synthesize and recognize knowledge and skills. It makes use and encourages the trend towards taking ownership of one’s learning and this will only continue to grow and so has the potential to support the growth of applications like Zaffold. Especially now and with the changes we are seeing in the world I feel like we are going to have to take greater ownership for our own learning now and going forward. There is a clear target for this venture and trajectory for the development and expansion of the technology which looks promising. It’s a great idea and a solution to a problem that many only continue to grow and become more overwhelming because of the continual development of new learning management systems and platforms and so streamlining and tracking learning from all different sources is going to help make learning much more organized and help learners stay more accountable and in control of their learning. However, I have some reservations. Given that Zaffold relies upon existing platforms I wonder how changes and updates in those platforms would affect their functioning with Zaffold? Or how changes in Zaffold would affect its ability to work with other learning platforms? I’m still not totally confident in how the program will work with all the learning platforms it is supposed to interact with. As an EVA I would not invest in this venture at this time. It seems like a great idea and would offer an attractive solution to organizing and recognizing learning experiences which would be of great help, but I feel I need greater understanding and evidence of how it will function and be maintained.
