ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. (PRWEB) July 07, 2015
NoteStream™, the innovative mobile learning app designed to enable users to find, enjoy and follow long-form articles and blogs easily on their mobile devices, today announced three exciting new partnerships: Surfrider Foundation, The Ecology Center and the Alaska Zoo. Notestream selected these organizations to educate their readers about the importance of protecting and conserving the environment.
“We like to think of ourselves as environmentally conscious individuals, and we couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with three organizations whose values are in line with our own”, explained CEO and founder, Michelle Forsythe. “We are thrilled to offer our users with a wealth of content that helps educate on important environmental issues.”
Surfrider Foundation is one of the largest non-profit, grassroots environmental organizations dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches. The content available on the app encourages readers to become better informed about coastal preservation efforts, and offers updates on current campaigns and ways to get involved with ongoing initiatives.
The Ecology Center highlights empowering and cutting-edge environmental solutions that can be applied to daily life, focusing on five key verticals of Water, Food, Waste, Energy and Shelter. The NoteStream app will feature a robust and growing catalog from The Ecology Center, with articles ranging from sustainable food systems and resource conservation, to cultivating healthy communities through school gardens.
Based in Anchorage, the Alaska Zoo has provided a home for orphaned, injured and captive-born animals for over four decades. Dedicated to promoting the conservation of Arctic, sub-Arctic and like climate species through education, research and community enrichment, the Alaska Zoo provides presentations & talks focusing on global climate change and its impact on the Arctic ecosystem to schools, other organizations, and on-site events.
Notestream is partnering with these organizations to expand their library of content to include background knowledge and ways to get involved in conservation efforts, with articles ranging from the importance of banning plastic bags to marine conservation and protection of the world’s beaches.
The NoteStream app presents content known as “NoteStreams” in short, sequential, easy-to-read segments known as “Notes.” NoteStream’s contributors are carefully selected and identified as experts in their designated category. Authors on the app, without any monetary investment to leverage this mobile platform, will benefit from the recent 2.0 update through its app and web-based author profile. NoteStream readers have an average article completion rate of 59 percent, compared to the average online completion rate of only 8 to 15 percent. Further reinforcing the efficacy of the NoteStream app platform, NoteStream users are reading content at roughly 300 words per minute, compared to the average online reader skimming articles at 1,000 words per minute (Source: Nielsen Norman Group). These statistics combined show that NoteStream users are consuming content and finishing articles more than their online user counterparts who end up only skim-reading and, more often than not, dropping off long before reaching the end of an article.
NoteStream™ is an innovative mobile learning app that encourages personal growth and exploration through the presentation of enriching content in snackable form written by expert contributors on a wide range of topics. NoteStream was launched in 2014 by Michelle and Richard Forsythe who wanted to learn more about French wine but were underwhelmed with their options to do so. They decided to create a mobile solution where anyone could acquire credible information in the scattered moments of “dead time” found throughout the modern mobile lifestyle. Unlimited NoteStreams can be saved in a personal file box, are automatically picked up where the reader leaves off, and are easily shared.
