Social network for e-learners

As more places in the world get access to the internet but remain devoid of quality schools, online education becomes a vital tool for progress. However online education lacks key social interactions with peers and mentors that are needed for it to replace school. Social MOOC Taker makes e-learning more social and engaging. Our MVP connects people taking MOOCs to a small study group of people taking the same MOOC through a mobile app. Learners interact with each other in an intimate chat like setting and keep track of their group's progress in the course. Through the MVP, we're trying to raise the retention rates of MOOCs, which is less than 5%. We are currently running a private beta in which we're offering our app to a few online courses we've partnered with. Eventually, we hope to evolve our product into a more versatile social platform which can be used by all kinds of e-learners to meet mentors and peers online.
