1.Our Mission: To liberate IT and Cyber Security training so that it becomes and remains free and accessible to everyone, everywhere, of every skill level, forever.
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to learn for free, and the role we can play in making that belief a reality, is to provide free IT and Cyber Security training.
It has become nearly impossible for many people to pursue their passion of learning about technology and cyber security because of the outrageous costs and lack of availability. We have built the framework for anyone to pursue this dream and we did so because everyone deserves, at very least, the opportunity. What they do with the opportunity is up to them, but education should be a right for all people globally.
2. What we plan to accomplish and provide to the world: We plan to continually evolve and expand our list of classes and resources that are available to the public. In doing so, we will further develop the online IT and Cyber Security learning model, to make it more full and comprehensive.
3. We want to include features such as: Transcriptions / captioning for all of the videos for the hearing impaired, a mobile app so that people do not necessarily have to stream the learning content, and more interactive learning tools and exercises like quizzes and other ways of testing comprehension. We also need to expand the list of classes overall.
4. Cybrary’s Goal: In order for Cybrary to sustain our model of providing free IT and Cyber Security classes to everyone, everywhere, forever, we must reach a critical mass of students, which is approximately 250,000. We are also looking to add some key features that further facilitate learning for people in developing nations (due to poor internet reliability), such as a hybrid mobile app so that the videos do not need to be streamed. In order to reach that sustainable point and add these features, we need approximately $200,000. However, $25,000 would at least allow us to create the mobile app and add a few more resources / classes.
Risks and challenges
Essentially once the project is funded, we will be able to deliver this training openly and free to everyone everywhere, forever. The primary risk is not being able to reach the critical mass of users required to sustain.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
