" First of all, I deeply believe that being a Millennium Fellow will teach me so many new skills and will help me to create new experiences. It will guide me to be the best version of myself. Thanks to Millennium Fellowship I can work and try for a better society with an amazing community. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Omerdeyim: Student Portal
Omerdeyim: Student Portal is a website to gather a community for sharing lecture notes, tutoring, socializing and studying together. As the pandemic caused students to have weaker connections with their academic life, limited their social relations and diminished their motivation we detected the need for an online social center. Through omerdeyim.com, anyone who desires to learn can collaborate on enhancing the standards of their learning process. The project aimed to develop the educational standards during the pandemics, as online education is both a challenge and an opportunity for the learning environment. By creating a website that is designed to share notes, educational links, tutor/teacher advice, course feedback etc. and meet to study together and support each other online mentally and motivationally. By the help of Millennium Fellowship, we are planning to extend the scale of the platform and aim to reach more people motivated to study whether they are university students or someone that aims to grow his/her knowledge on the available content hopefully within August-December 2021.
