Studytonight is a vision to provide free and easy education to everyone on the Internet. They are working towards bringing the entire study routine of students on the Internet.
From gaining Knowledge to collecting notes, discussing problems to saving best for exams, and everything else that will help students utilize their precious nights. They have started up with providing tutorials for some great Computer Programming subjects, and are constantly working hard to expand their Library.
Also, they are building a collection of Online Video courses from some of the elite universities of World and other Internet sources. So that, the students can get all the courses organized and sorted at one place.
Studytonight tap onto a totally different section of students. Studytonight focuses on core programming subjects like, Core Java, C++ etc, though they will eventually expand their boundaries, but right now they are focused on core programming subjects. Also, they are and will always be open source, even if in future if they include MOOC’s, they still plan to be an open source. Their services will always be free.
JOURNEY SO FAR
Studytonight went live on 28th march, 2013 and since then they have been overwhelmed by the love, appreciation and support of visitors. Traffic to Studytonight is growing linearly since the first day. Right now Studytonight gets about 700k page views every month with about 200k unique visitors each month. They have easy lessons for some of the very important subjects for an engineering student. At studytonight they can also give topical tests, to practice and can share their test scores with their friends on Facebook to keep them motivated.
Getting the word out was difficult initially, the team focused on sharing about their website on some popular programming groups on Facebook, along with reaching out to students in various communities on internet. As far as the challenges are concerned, Coding a website was never difficult, but initial challenge was creating perfect content, easy, simple and useful.
Many features are in pipeline; they are following an incremental model, and are on the right path at the right pace. They keep releasing new features every two months, to keep the users engaged.
The team recently organized CODETONIGHT, a coding event and received great participation from the users. Last month they included Studyroom into Studytonight, with some minimal features and will soon be adding more features to it, along with a new feature which will enable users to collect more content from around the internet.
Right now, the team are not earning any sort of revenue from Studytonight. In future they will plan things out depending upon what Studytonight ripe into.
