I would want the use of site to be free for everyone: more like classifieds. The site can still be centrally managed in the technical sense (a core team, a web team etc. ) I prefer that because such sites need a lot of attention for maintenance etc. The site can still be free for users - maybe free for students. I have explored the option of ownership in last point, non profit or for profit. The example of site I have given is just to show what several features there can be. Just that.

Hi BK! I wanted to know what do you mean by "wiki sort of" Do you mean community managed or any thing else?

Just check this site : I think this one is a good example. What say?


Shruti commented on Crowdsourcing Mentorship

Hi Aaryaman! Nice idea. The app will help the youth who are willing to help old people in solving their problems. However, specifically focusing on the case where old people are not very well acquainted with the new technology - mobile applications, internet etc ( Trust me I've seen my professors facing challenges in using them!) It will be a good idea for the youth to teach old people using latest technology. This will lead to their empowerment especially in countries like India where old people have not much to spend their time with. As an example, I will tell about one of my online courses, (actually all of them) having many old people, even over 80! They have not been a student in that field even, few of them not much educated, but they want to learn and they are learning. Can we think about such thing in India?
