The Problem

The time crunch to cover curriculum requirements in school leaves little time for students to ask questions or explore important tangential topics.

Target Market

 

 

Middle School and Up

Elementary school has more room for creativity, but when things "start to get serious," in Middle School and beyond, there's less room for student questions.

The Opportunity

 

Teachers are constantly looking for ways to engage students, where some of the top suggestions include using students' interests and fascinations.

Most online courses are either professional programs for adults, or prep-focused for school-age children.

The Solution

Cue+A is a web-based platform where students can propose classes based on questions they have. Teachers and experts can respond with video tutorials, stories, or explanations.

 
 
 
 

 

Teachers are also provided with inspiration for topics to cover and content for professional development.
