18-year-old Awa Donacien Mokom is a first-year student in Full-stack web development at Seven Advanced Academy Douala.
He has been noted by many as being “too inquisitive” and “smart to do”. The young tech enthusiast has discovered a new way of studying on Youtube in an innovation he calls 7Youtube.

7youtube is a web platform that helps people study strategically on Youtube using systematic and targeted videos void of random distractions.
According to the student developer, 7Youtube means complete Youtube. He justifies that Youtube is very broad with everything in it making it very difficult for one to do targeted studies. One can go on Youtube to learn how to be a web developer and after two to three web development videos he/she ends up switching to comedies, movies due to random video suggestions.
Seven Communications caught up with the just 2months into training smart programming student Awa Donacien sitted on the ball at his usual position in the Lily computer lab at Seven Academy. We wanted to know about his innovation. This is what he had to say:
“During Ajax course, we were taught how to work with API data. We were given an assignment to be submitted the following day so I decided to go on youtube to learn something very quick and complete my assignment”. He added
“Unfortunately, instead of concentrating on watching specific Ajax tutorial videos, I ended up being distracted by suggested videos of my favorite music, movies, how to make money online as a developer”. I later realize it was already 3 am and I was busy watching something else on Youtube instead of doing my assignment.
“As a web development student, I decided to solve this problem by using my knowledge in API data to create 7Youtube that can collect specific videos from Youtube and display them accordingly based on the category a user selects”.
From our due findings and tasting of the web platform Seven communication discovered that 7YouTube actually solves the problem of randomly displayed videos on YouTube, it displays YouTube videos based only on the category that a user selects.
“I think I am solving the problem of distraction that we often face on YouTube, and as time goes on I look forward to improving the project”. Awa Donacien
