We are exceptionally proud of the fact that we have helped over a million people around the world prepare for various tests. But, we’ve always wanted to have a relationship with Grockit users after they’re done. We feel strongly that social learning shouldn’t be a method or practice you use for months or a year. We believe that social learning should be the dominant instructional design for all of humanity. That’s a big idea. And we’re ready to prove it.
Learnist is a way for anyone to share what they know. Sounds simple, right? It isn’t.
The web is full of free content — blogs, books, feeds, music, videos, podcasts — that can be assembled quickly into lessons. Before Learnist, anyone seeking this information had to discover all of these resources by searching, surfing, watching, listening and keeping track of dozens of sites. Learning on the web meant that a person had to assemble all of the key resources themselves.
With Learnist, you can quickly teach and learn from others with:
Expert vetting of content
Sequencing of material
Socializing around every piece of didactic material
Here are some things we recommend you try at Learnist:
Board Creation. It only takes a few seconds to create a board that helps someone learn. Simply cut and paste urls or use the handy browser plugin.
Collaboration. You can invite anyone to join a Learnist board. Know an expert? Invite them to join Learnist, and they’ll be a collaborator immediately.
Suggest a Learning. Find a learn board that you’re interested in, and add to that board. If you know of another online resource, just recommend it by clicking the “recommend” button and pasting a URL.
