Two companies have been working hard for some time now, preparing for their beta launches. Tteach and Dekoh are both rather idealistic in nature, and bring that simple attribute to their companies. This perspective is actually quite necessary, considering the fact that both companies are ushering in a few new concepts when it comes to interactivity online. Tteach aims to provide free schooling for anyone with Internet access, through a program of published lessons online from authorities in the community. Dekoh has created a service to share media from your desktop through the internet without downloading or uploading any of the items.
Tteach will offer a way for everyone to gain access to more information in an increasingly interactive manner. A self-regulating system by design, those that offer the most value to others will be ranked accordingly and given more status within Tteach. This is important since the way in which people learn has a great deal to do with how they retain informaiton. Finding someone that can stimulate the desire to learn is so much more important than the traditional theories regarding education. With Tteach, a wide variety of lessons and educational tools will become available online, and a community can be formed around these lessons. If someone finds a particular affinity with one teacher, then they will be able to go back to that teacher time and again, and correspond with them directly.
Dekoh's ability to offer insight to one's desktop through the internet without the burden of uploading and then distributing across several networks and applications is breaking ground in new territory. They have provided a way for you to pick and choose which of my songs you'd like to play in a separate player, or view all of my photo albums. Dekoh's applications are easy ways to manage media, and even have an integration tool so that your photos can quickly and automatically be loaded into your Flikr account. The platform Dekoh has built also allows for the creation and sharing of an application you've built for yourself, as well as saving an existing application (i.e. your blog) to be worked on offline.
As both of these companies are introducing new ways of going about existing human interactions, they will require a certain amount of education for the public. It is for this reason (among many) that beta testing is so important. And as Tteach and Dekoh prepare for their next phase of development, we ponder the ramifications and possibilities that these new services will be able to offer us.
