Hey Shruti, that's a fabulous idea around the user testing becoming part of their thesis. That will be something worth mentioning when we're approaching these institutions. Totally agree around the possible problem of connection. I see step-by-step tutorials as a vital part of the product, and a chat function to answer questions. I think early uptake with senior citizens will be amongst those who are already at reasonable capability level online. The biggest challenge will be for those who are novice or have very little skill around this.
