Abstract:
    Our project is basically a gMOOC (gamified Massive Open Online Course). Our goal is to provide education online, but we aim to teach students with the help of games as well.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    In Pakistan especially, students are told to memorize some formula or theory without actually understanding the concept. This ultimately leads to people who maybe know certain formulas, but lack the proper understanding. Our aim is to bridge this gap, by teaching concepts with games.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   We feel that the students of Pakistan would benefit greatly with this idea. The will have a fun way of learning, which they will actually enjoy and remember.
How will the solution works
    We will develop a main website and (possibly) a mobile application. Students and teachers will have separate accounts. Teachers can upload lectures and videos, while students can view these items and experiment with game-based activities. At the end, students are evaluated and the proper feedback is given.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    We prefer not to think of other as competitors. Education should be a common goal for all. That being said, what makes us different is our use of games and game-based activities to make the learning experience much more enjoyable.
