Through a sponsored research project, our team of students and faculty at Rochester Institute of Technology with support from the RIT MAGIC center have built a system to help others create awareness to stop the spread of hate and violence online. The system we created is entitled "Ex-Out," which consists of a mobile app handbook and a website. The Ex-Out mobile app is a digital handbook that educates users about creating effective social media content, and a website houses an open-source media kit of visual assets and brand style guide in PDF. Alongside the mobile app, the website offers free and ready-to-use creative assets, templates, and a style guide to promote users' messaging. Leveraging emerging tools, diverse student creators, and a collaborative process, we can create engaging and interactive solutions that help transform our digital dialogues. The Ex-Out project creates a space that delivers educational materials and encourages others to bring positive change through the experience of learning, making, and sharing.
