Zetro aims to be a tool for learners. It is not for your grocery list, managing your calendar, or journalling. It is for learning: a sector that is often neglected by software.
If you are reading this, you probably have developed a bundle of tools that make up your study system. These tools bridge a digital and a physical world: paper, notebooks, powerpoints, word docs, websites, Youtube videos, etc. The list goes on, but often the software in our toolbox was not built for studying. They were designed to be word processors, presentation tools, or PDF readers. This works. But to what extent? Let me ask you:
These tools are incredibly versatile, but this also makes it hard for them to specialize in a specific set of user problems. How would a tool that is optimized for note-taking in a digital world look? That is the question Zetro aims to answer.Hypothesis
Typically, study systems have an ingestion phase, which is inline with conventional note-taking. Then there’s a review phase, which is everything that comes after (summaries, cue cards, etc). The exact manifestation of these phases differs from person to person. However, one of the issues that I am looking to explore with Zetro is the review phase. More specifically, if you begin to frame your notes as a hive of ideas and then manipulate from this point forward, will you engage with the content more intimately? Does this intimacy with the content foster an improved learning environment?
In all honesty, I am not sure how this “hive” will look in practice, and even if I did, validating this hypothesis requires your notes to be centralized. By initially focusing on the ingestion phase, I hope to build a foundation to explore the question in a much more meaningful way.
How you study is the result of gradual tinkering and evolution of methods. Zetro is not meant to replace your system all together, but instead become another valuable weapon at your disposal.
