Problem

The world is currently facing an issue that the general population knows very little about. People are stuck in their homes, anxious and in the dark. Parents must find a way to educate their children on a very complex subject. Software developers looking to make useful apps to resolve the problem need to write for themselves. Teachers now need to make digital content as they can no longer use their existing material. People want to find a way to help in this crisis but do not know where to start.

What is it?

A centralised location to find key educational tool to learn about topics not just to do with this Pandemic but also future outbreaks.

It will be primarily put into a form which can be easily learnt/revised using Anki a cross platform app specifically designed for long term knowledge retention. The website is so that it is easily viewable and portable to any form. We hope to make the dataset in such a reusable format that any people who wish to use the content in their own application need to only point to the centralised location. This will help with providing updates directly instead of just a static website.

This will be a community driven project to ensure most accurate information and that corrections can be easily provided. We hope to translate this into as many languages as possible to make it as accessible as possible to a wider variety of people.

Who is it for?

For the General Public

Will help people learn about the topic during this epidemic & so that knowledge is retained to prevent lessons being forgotten in the future.

For Students

A self-service place to learn about the various topics that this situation presents.

For Teachers

Gives them a self-contained educational resource which can be easily used in a course curriculum for students.

For Developers

Many applications to do with the outbreak will need to so we hope to make the data easily integratable into their applications.

For example like FAQs, smart speakers or so it can be used during a loading screen during high bandwidth periods.
