user group

During the COVID-19 period, students and workers often finished work alone at home, making it difficult to concentrate.

Problem

.    The 'at home' environment makes it easy to get distracted while working on a project.

.    People are weaker both mentally and physically than before.

Needs

.    Need to find an efficient way to manage the time for school work and leisure.
.    Need a collaborative atmosphere in which projects can be successfully completed.

Interview and what I found out

.    I interviewed five college students who took all courses online.
.    My questions focused on work processes and the problems they faced.

Current situation and limitation

self training. Plan your daily life and try to be more structured.

Collaborate with co-workers to encourage each other to work.

Take it to the extreme to force themselves to keep working until they're done.

Allow limited distractions until they feel it's time to get on the track.

Solution

Create an environment where people can focus and work with their collaborators to supervise each other.

Maximizes concentration by  intensive sessions and keeping score of concentration time.

Create a solution that mimics a classroom with a mute function that limits disturbances during collaboration.

Focus meet

The platform helps people collaborate with each other to study and work efficiently in virtual meeting rooms.

While most of the existing focus aids primarily count time, Focus Meet offers more comprehensive features.
