Campaign unsuccessfully ended on: 15 Oct,2014
In general the established Universities in Jordan follow the standard of using textbooks for their lectures. In every course at the university the professors announce lecture-supporting and applying textbooks for the students. It is recommended to purchase the required textbook at the beginning of the semesters in order to follow the lecture appropriately. So the textbooks need to be studied well. It might be that the textbooks do not always come along with an affordable price. Therefore considering the price of the students’ textbooks as an opportunity we would like to take, in order to deliver a new usage of the current textbooks.
Our idea is simple, it is to make a platform called Kitabook to connect students with each others and give them the chance to get in touch with each others in order to rent and exchange textbooks easily.
Who will use our platform are students and most of students don't have bank accounts so they cant pay the rent of the textbook online, so we will make membership cards. The student will have a credit in his account on our platform and when he want to rent a textbook the money will be taken from his balance and sent to the textbook owner balance after that the textbook owner can come to our office to take his money or keep it in his account in order to rent textbooks as well. So the students will be able to rent textbooks online easily and fast.
We will sell membership cards for the universities students to sustain our project. There will be two kinds of memberships, the VIP membership and the regular membership.
What We Need
We need $ 3,000 to start our platform, the money will cover:
- The rent for the first month for the office.
- The cost of the membership card.
- 4 months (electricity, water, internet and other bills).
- Buying a domain and security software for the website.
- Paying for a host for the website.
Kitabook will help not only the students by decreasing the price of their textbooks in order to decrease their study fees but also will help the owners of the textbooks by bringing profit to them and give them the chance to get rid of their old textbooks.
Kitabook here will represent a money and time-saving opportunity for students to rent and lend their textbooks. In addition our platform contributes to an exchange of information between experienced students and the freshmen. On our platform we promote chats and communicative interaction among the members about the textbooks, lectures and university.
