Today, we found a pre-school in Toronto that is willing to pilot Ruffbooks with 3 teachers and 16 students over 6 weeks!
The primary goal of the pilot will be to learn how Ruffbooks fits in the parents/teacher relationship. I have long suspected that in order to fully capture a child's creativity we will need the teacher's participation.
During the pilot we hope to:
redesign the UX to make it fast for anyone managing multiple children
understand what sort of value teachers require beyond an upload and share service
discover the business opportunities at the school level (the director of the school showed interest in a subscription model)
I'm super excited!
