Timecapsule

Timecapsule | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Timecapsule is basically a website that can send users messages in the future.
Users...
- select a date they wish their message to be sent.
- write themself a message.
- click submit and wait…
This could be from one day to several years.
It has many potential uses within teaching and learning; as part of an induction course, for example, learners could write themselves a "time capsule" letter about what they hope to achieve during a set period; a month,term, etc. The letter would arrive, at the end of the chosen period, and learners will be able to reflect on their achievements.
