Massidea.org has several features to accommodate the requirements and needs of all types of courses. Especially but not limited to courses related to/involving innovation techniques, content production, communication and brain storming between different networks.
The benefits of implementating the service
Massidea.org allows assignments to become more than mere course performances subjected only to the teacher’s evaluation. Assignments submitted to Massidea.org are visible to parties beyond course and even university boundaries and can therefore receive comments, feedback and suggestions from all over the world. This way students and teachers alike are able to receive more versatile feedback and help for different activities done during the course. Both parties can also form new networks and get new ideas which can be used in future studies or in other aspects of educational or professional paths.
Users can use this chain of activities as a part of their personal portfolio to exemplify not only the content of and the effort done during their studies but also the organisational boundary breaking collaboration experiences.
