Realtek believes that participation and support from enterprises in the development of the makers’ community group will boost the sharing of community technology and knowledge resources. People from around the world will then be able to use the Accomdemy platform for further exploration in their studies and to advance innovative applications. Furthermore, Realtek hopes that the development of this online social platform will enable people from rural communities to easily access educational resources in the electrical, information, science, and engineering fields. By bridging education and technology, Accomdemy will create greater innovation and value. As the knowledge and strength of Accomdemy multiplies, all participants on the platform will benefit from the abundant knowledge and value, causing the platform to spread even further. Since the founding of Accomdemy in February 2022, close to 2,200 members joined from a diverse set of places ranging from Asia, to Europe, and North America. They spontaneously held 239 knowledge sharing activities. The number of monthly active users increased from 493 in the initial
stage, to 1,785, with a monthly natural rate of increase of 9.8%. The average engagement rate also rose to 19.8%. Growth of the platform was evident as seen in the increase in innovations. During the first quarter of 2022, contributors to the platform independently submitted 15 hardware projects and seven software projects while sharing knowledge through written documents. The results showed how Accomdemy members successfully use a technology-based knowledge platform combined with the strength of social participation to make technology learning sustainable and to produce a positive cycle of innovation.
In the future, Realtek plans to turn Accomdemy into a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). This type of social enterprise would likely attract even more people to join and promote the development of makers’ communities around the world, who will in turn share even more innovative projects. By making the sharing of knowledge and learning opportunities borderless, Accomdemy is spreading technology education. Everyone with a desire to learn can feel the warmth of sharing and the energy that comes from joint participation.
