The Study Community: Lo-Fi Music - Deepstash

The Study Community: Lo-Fi Music

To study, many students opt for 'Lo-fi’(low fidelity) music, which is warm, underproduced, homemade and calming, demanding little cognitive attention from the brain.

Youtube. Spotify and Apple Music are filled with Lo-Fi music playlists and paired with the right headphones, this kind of sound is great for highly productive study sessions.

MORE IDEAS FROM Caught in the Study Web - Cybernaut

The Study Web

The Study web is a gigantic, interconnected super-network of study-oriented content with a community of students of all ages, countries, all types of ethnicity, and all kinds of discipline.

On the study web, students can watch each other study, becoming study buddies on communities like Discord, Tiktok, Youtube and Reddit. It is the go-to place for their study resources and tips, along with social and moral support.

  • Study Web connects students who sometimes vent their problems as they face the same kind of economic, cultural or emotional hurdles. 
  • Many students are frustrated due to teenage angst, or an identity crisis fueled by a broken home.
  • The Study Web is filled with youngsters who have their own personal therapy sessions with strangers who are now their online kin. 
  • They pour out their depressive tendencies, sadness and stress-induced anxiety on the chatrooms of Discord, which are now what IRL(internet relay chat) chatrooms were a couple of decades ago.

The study network of Discord works due to a three-pronged approach:

  1. Gamification of studying, where people get virtual rewards for studying more.
  2. Peer Pressure, where they are held accountable due to others in the group keeping a tab.
  3. Data analytics of their study graph in the form of a monthly leaderboard, helping them build their streak and climb upwards.
