Master's Thesis Project


Summary

Duration of project: 4 months

 

The design focuses on public schools and how a government website can be integrated with the schools to provide easy access to public domain books.

This project started with a motivation to improve the Brazilian government online image. Through my process, I found an opportunity that could meet a existing problem.

 

OPPORTUNITY

There is a digital library maintained, albeit poorly, by the government.

It contains a large number of books, music, images and videos that are legally in the public domain for free access.

PROBLEM

Lack of available resources and assistance for public school students.

Both the government and the parents don’t give proper aid to the students, so it often falls solely on the teachers to provide a great education.

SOLUTION

A website that provides free public domain books to children in public schools.
