According to its developers, an internet poll among students recently showed that many of them waste considerable time with unnecessary technical issues. Among the most frustrating issues were filtering unwanted search results and struggling with re-formatting copy-pasted material.
To answer those difficulties, the application includes a text editor, a specialized search system and a set of additional services such as grammar-check and bibliography-maker. Skills & Knowledge, the company behind the application, says that the benefits of the application are a decrease in homework preparation time and an improvement of the students’ grades and learning skills.
According to Skills & Knowledge, users of the app reported that searching with sCoolWork brought more accurate and relevant results than using other search engines. The application’s text editor was reported to have eliminated frustrating issues resulting from copy-pasting from the web and re-formatting content. “Users claim to have saved hours just on one essay,” the company said in a press release.
After experiencing sCoolWork, Dr. Moti Friedman, Managing Partner of the BrightNet Institute, noted: “sCoolWork has the potential to substantially influence how people in general, and students specifically, process information. Rather than filtering endless amounts of irrelevant data as they do today, I believe sCoolWork will enable its users to finally focus on learning and thinking.”
sCoolWork developers state that although the application currently delivers a fraction of what it eventually will in the future and mention that that upcoming features will include customizable essay walkthroughs and a mobile app.
Skills & Knowledge is an Israeli startup company founded in 2011 that provides software tools for researching and creating papers for both students and information workers. It aims to save the users’ time and improve the overall quality of the document.
