Research Outline

Recent Learning and Working at Home Tech


Provide information on recent tech devices that enables learning and working at home. The ideal research will incorporate the following elements:
  • tech devices developed in the last two t three years.
  • examples of tech device desired include audio, visual, time tracking device, among others.

Early Findings

Data Availability

  • The initial research suggests that data availability is low when recency is limited to the last 2-3 years.


  • Engageli is a higher education video-conferencing platform that was founded in August 2020.
  • Engageli was formed to solve the problem of large class size and limited group interactions during online learning in a way Zoom can't.
  • The founders got the idea to start the platform after they caught their daughters learning on Zoom watching Netflix and playing Sims.
  • Engageli enables teachers to break students into small groups of ten or fewer students to work together on projects, increasing interactions.
  • Professors can also easily join each group to see what the students are doing and students can make screenshots and comment on slides that are hyperlinked to the lecture.


  • We were able to find one recent technology that enables learning at home during the initial hour of research.
  • Our initial research suggests that although there are probably only a handful of learning and working technology that was founded in the last 2-3 years. This suggests that only a few may be found that meet the recency criteria.
  • To find more learning and working at home tech-enabled devices, we recommend additional research. Details on our recommended research paths have been provided in our proposals below. Please select one or more proposals from those provided.
