Our user research showed that high school teachers spend more time on the preparation of lectures than they would like to. Sure, every good lecture takes a decent amount of preparation time but how much effort is it exactly and why does it take so long?
As it turns out, teachers prepare their courses on their own, usually the week before they have to hold them, searching through various school books, Youtube videos and their own material from previous years. When they are done with a course they usually store their materials in a physical folder in their home. The only time another teacher gets to see the contents of this folder is, when he is in his apprenticeship years and asks his mentor for his material.
We believe that this process results in a lot of redundant work being done by the teachers, consuming work time that could be spend on students, rather than preparing for them. We realize that teaching styles differ, and so do the needs of specific school classes. Therefore a simple copy and paste of one teachers material will not fit all. We have a more nuanced solution in mind.
Let us present to you: TeacheRedo, an online platform that allows teachers to mix and match, discuss, rate and share small course modules like introductions to a new topic or small exercises, puzzling them together to a course that fits their students as well as their own style.
