By being so granular, the videos offer hundreds of on-demand-answers for high school and university students. Besides high school mathematics, sciences and languages, sofatutor.com also offers sections on academic fields like economics. For mathematics, the most challenging subject for students, the website already offers more than 2000 video clips covering high school and basic college maths.
By displaying interactive tests after each video, learners are able to check, if they have really understood the point of the video tutorial. Launched in April 2009 in Berlin, sofatutor.com focuses on the concept of crowdsourcing: The same people who teach in schools or give private lessons offline are being turned into video-tutoring stars. Talented teachers, tutors and other experts can earn money with their videos on sofatutor.com. sofatutor is working together with the existing actors in the education market, not against them. Every video that is published is part of a revenue-sharing modell, creating income for the producer on a by-the-click basis. The quality of the content is checked by expert staff.
sofatutor.com already offers a wide range of professional education videos which are watched intensively by college - and high school students.
