Dear Mr. Sabo,

I hope this message finds you well!

Pnutek firmly believes in students learn the material and internalize it. By no means is Pnutek trying to enable shortcuts to the necessary learning curve. My colleague Austin Fregene posted a longer response discussing that topic in a comment below!

That's a great idea! That could be implemented in many subjects, how would you suggest generating the questions for a pop-up quiz to test the students' knowledge in a subject? Using a third party website? Using an algorithm? Have teachers involved and offer short quizzes that could be administered right on the app itself?

Yes, we eventually plan to cover technical subjects such as programming, math-based topics such as physics and data science. The challenge is creating a powerful enough software that can identify and translate such figures or equations. However, I agree with you that these topics are increasingly important in today's world and Pnutek loves a challenge!

Thanks for your support and very relevant connection to other subjects we could expand to! As we move forward we will be sure to reach back out to you when we move more into the technical space!

Best,
Rahul

Dear Ms. Wang,

Thank you! It's nice to hear that you also study in an auditory fashion!

Of course, may I suggest trying our demo listed on our homepage? Perhaps you can try it and let us know what you think? Our goal is to make it a one-stop-shop item when it comes to studying. So, although it may not pick up the very tricky science terms or complex mathematical equations right now, we definetly are aiming to advance the technology to a point where it can!

Thank you for your interest and please let us know what you think of the demo! Pnutek is an app improved by all of the feedback we receive from many interested and creative people such as yourself, so thank you for your thoughts!

Best,
Rahul

Dear Sanjna,

Thank you for your feedback! In terms of copyrights of songs, we wouldn't have to purchase those rights since free soundtracks are available, in the event that a copyright issue does arise, we will license the copyright or partner with an existing music copyright holding firm such as Spotify for example. Could you please elaborate on what you mean by make the notes more concise?

Absolutely! Our Marketing timeline is to increasingly incorporate larger and larger partners such as Quizlet, or K-12 Elevate learning to help lend credibility to our idea. In addition, we are devising a distribution model that would use education institutes and/or entire districts to promote the use of edtech such as Pnutek!

Thank you for your time and I hope I answered your questions to your satisfaction! If you have any further questions or follow up questions, please don't hesitate to ask :)

Sincerely,
Rahul
