Students also often struggle with managing different aspects of their lives and wasting their free time, thinking there is nothing they need to work on. Students also lack the motivation to keep working hard in their studies, because they cannot see or even remember their end goal.
Our motivation for CROWN is for students to effectively maximize their time to fulfill their goals, and essentially to make the important, urgent.
How can students stay motivated towards their responsibilities and goals that they want to fulfill?
3) Students tend to forget to work towards the goals on a daily basis and waste their time.
Students can stay motivated by constantly being reminded of their goals and what's important to them
With CROWN, students can have an external source hinting to them to work on what makes them, well, them, by having students slowly, but surely, work towards their goals one day at a time.
4) Students don't have something to organize their lives better.
CROWN is a calendar web application geared towards students and their needs, goals, and problems.
Students can add assignments and tests with ease, rather than creating work arounds in other calendars to note an important exam.
5) Students have many events from numerous activities, and need to prioritize what they should work on next.
With Timeline in CROWN, students can visualize what's important
Students can constantly be reminded to work on their long-term and short-term goals.
Important events should be given more attention, time, and urgency (cognitive effort). Timeline is for a different time visualization for behavior change with students.
We noticed that the traditional calendar view does not differentiate between important (exams and weddings) and less important events (repeating classes). The timeline view can indidicate whether or not the student needs to make a decision in light of knowing how many important events are approaching. Therefore, CROWN offers the timeline view for each student's personal calendar, which is a new way to visually interpret time based on priority and importance.
