Explain your idea in details:
This is a website that gives students access to the important tips they need to know prior to their university application; this comes in form of guides, short videos, and webinars with university representatives and counsellors. An innovative feature of the website is that it will serve as an encyclopedia to minimize the number of websites and other mediums a student has to use to know about equivalency guides, score requirements, required standardized tests for the top universities in the world. Since undergraduate students getting closer to their university application season tend to look for sources that layout the information they need in a simple manner this will be the right choice for them and they would not have to visit too many websites to find what they are looking for.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The target segment is undergraduates. Even though universities have their own websites with the requirements for each application, students like me still find it irritating to be visiting so many websites and keeping track of each application requirements separately. So this is why I thought designing such a website would fill the gap in this market and give the students easier navigation and keep them up to date with any upcoming webinars. The satisfaction of the users will be assessed using short surveys after the user has visited the website multiple times and a section for comments will be provided. There will also be a counter for the number of visits the website gets per week which could also indicate the time where the website is most active so that marketing the app could be concentrated during those seasons to attract even more users. Schools could be one of the main marketers for this website as they will find it a tool for effective and fast research.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Since all the information is already available the only high capital needed will be the initial one when setting the website and then future funds will be needed whenever maintenance is necessary. This idea can be funded by non-profit organizations and other initiatives aiming to improve the quality of education such as the World Giftedness Center. All information used from sources external to the website will be clearly sited bellow each pdf file/video/tip etc. as to avoid infringement and maintain social responsibility.
I am Sarah Abdallah a 16 year old girl living in Amman and studying at Jubilee Institute. This idea stems from a need I spotted when I started researching about universities I may be interested in. I realized that this process could be made easier for us through this website. It is a simple idea but with great impact and high convenience for students. So I truly believe that applying this idea and bringing it to life will open our eyes to opportunities that we might have missed when looking through the internet for hours. I think every great creation is fueled by will and need and thats what I have.
