Other Study mode

    Starcommander , Mar 5, 2020 :

    As a student I often use my mobile device to :
    1. Copy notes from pdf.
    2. Prepare for the exam using my oneplus.
    The continuous notification, whatsapp groups results in loss of focus and concentration. Frequent turning off of the screen is a big problem while taking down notes.

    Current solution :

    The solution was to use focus mode of digital wellbeing. However the screen keeps on dimming after the set display timeout period. If I have to copy some assignments or take the notes from a phone to a book, first thing is to go to:
    settings>display>timeout>30 mins
    My solution
    My idea is to get study mode handle this problem. This study mode will also automatically detect the games installed in the phone and block them. On the basis of user, it can also restrict social networking during study hours. A countdown timer will be shown in status bar which will remind a student of his time left for studies.
    To summarise :
    create a study mode which prevent the screen from turning off, prevent apps from disturbing, turn on the reading mode and a small timer to remind you of how much time is left for study mode to stop.

    How it will work




    It is basically clubbing together focus mode, reading mode as well as controlling display timeout under the feature called study mode.

    Thank you so much for your idea. There are some interesting concepts, bur after giving it a second thought, there is some overlap to some already existing features like do not disturb mode, reading mode, screen lock and timer that can satisfy your needs. Yet we do draw inspiration from your input.

    We couldn't agree with you more: in some cases, users manually set the screen light duration to 30 minutes and forget to change it back. We will consider this in conjunction with the reading mode.

    At the same time, you mention that you hope the system will prevent some apps from launching, like games and social apps. We might consider designing similar features in future Zen Mode.

    All in all, we probably won't launch a dedicated learning mode. But thank you very much for the advice. It gives us more insight and inspiration. We will consider this in conjunction with other applications.

    Nice thought but there's only something's that oneplus can do studying or not studying is in the hands of the users tbh😂 Instead of suggesting new features you could go and study😂 just saying😂 But you already have digital wellbeing, focus mode , zen mode, work life balance, don't you think study mode will be just some tweak to those? instead they could just apply what you suggested in their already existing software like in focus mode.

    Well the main aim it control display timeout.
    If you are a student especially engineering student :
    4 years : 500+ handwritten assignments,
    Pdf of easy solutions, techmax before exam day,
    100+ lab manuals, all are now digital copies.

    The problem I face is, the screen will either timeout after a particular interval, or if I change the timeout manually, I forget to change it back to normal.

    This will be helpful in focusing, Saving the display from continously staying on while not studying and also saving environment by shifting to more pdf than books.

    People use books so as not to get disturbed. However, if they get a mode which can replicate a book in same manner, I am sure people will love it

    I feel you, been there done that[e]1f602[/e] After that phase i started keeping my device's screen on time to 30mins by default now. But yeah the assignment pages, scanned notes, could be categorised in an organised way using the software.

    That might fall under 3rd party. But my focus was to solve the screen out problem we engineering students face.

    Yes, Infact there was a solution by cyanogen mod team too. It was called caffeine.
    Only thing is, study mode will club the features of say focus mode, gaming mode, kinscreen and create a universal solution to aforementioned problems.
