WikiNotes - Killing procrastination
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Compilation of notes from universities and schools classes given by teachers or students to encourage learning and practice at home.
It is noteworthy that many have sought notes on our most interesting topics and of course there encyclopedias and information but fall short because we want something more like notes from teachers.
WikiNotes allow us to have at our disposal all the knowledge at hand and thus kill the procrastination.

How it works?
A difference of wiki-webs which has content and its history and its summarize,..., a WikiNote have a complete necessary content of the topic showed dynamically.

What means dynamic content?
It means that the content should be not just text, it should include videos, images, colors... All like seeing a class board.

Why use dynamic content?
Because the student not just want to read content, he want to memorize it and domain it in order to solve problems which would find at live.

What about coincidence topics?
A topic should have a couple of notes which has being organized by its rate.

How a WikiNote would be rated?
Students should rate the note marking a number of starts at the fields which should extends how much it help them and how the content has been shown

What if somebody want to 'improve' some content?
Like working with a repository, people could make their contributions and the owner could accept it.

What about the illegal or untrusted content?
A WikiNote should be accepted by a moderator in order to be public, so the author need to make the corresponding request. And if he edit the note or accept a contribution, it need to submit again to another part of request topics.
Taking a count of the illegally of develop some content, users should has the corresponding permission to.
But as is known there could be a illegal publication, to prevent it happens(that those make a lot request of spamming content), users should be also approved by a moderator(or a algorithm) which determine the reality of a user profile.

What if a WikiNote has various authors?
Those could be linked by the way of the main author determine it's contribution.

What about college rights of content?
Agreements with universities willing to publish are made and it would guarantee the rank and the trustworthy of a user too.
