Every educator knows the secret to success is failure. ^IfMine was designed with just that in mind: Iteration. “Fail Forward” is our motto.
^IfMine was created from the ground up by an educator and designer. We know how important it is take an idea or a project and Evolve It. Our application allows versioning of your project from the day you start, without losing your followers or having to create a new project.
Where other collaboration tools require a completely new shared document or a whole mess of emails getting back on the same page, ^IfMine uses the Follow mentality to keep your fans, Collaborators and Mentors up to speed with your latest Evolution.
With ^IfMine, project feedback has never been easier. Whether you’re looking to help someone or simply want to explore new and exciting ideas, we will connect you with the best projects and people our community has to offer.
^IfMine is looking at education and online learning with a keen interest. According to the Sloan Consortium, over 5.6 million people took online classes in 2009 and that number is growing. How did they manage their papers, projects and ideas? Likely, by passing around emails or using clunky discussion boards in outdated learning management systems.
Isn’t it time our students had the opportunity and functionality of their favorite social sites facilitating a better education? At ^IfMine, we believe so. We’re passionate about improving our services to make building successful projects easier for students everywhere.
Where is ^IfMine going? We’re a young company with a big vision and a small product. We’re flexible and able to grow the demands of our community. ^IfMine is poised to jump into mobile platforms, increase engagement through gamification and enhance our users ability to find the right mentor for them.
The ^IfMine Team has vision for the future. We want ^IfMine to be the place for people who make things happen.
