I’m heading to SXSW in the morning. But before I do, and before I start my SXSW coverage, oh yes there will be blogging–and pictures!, wanted to mention the recent news about LearnHub:
- LearnHub.com launches – Teach and Learn Online | StartupNorth
- Victoria Start-ups get Press | Techvibes Blog
- LearnHub Launches, looks great » ThomasPurves.com
I gave LearnHub a quick look today–not nearly long enough I think–and read the coverage and I’m pretty interested and intrigued. You all know that I’m a big advocate of not only life-long learning, but also leveraging technology to make education more accessible to all. From what I’ve seen so far, it looks like LearnHub has a lot to offer. Its model, at least on the surface, is similar to OneBigU. Granted OneBigU focuses on answering specific questions and LearnHub is about courses, but the idea is that people contribute to the learning of all.
Crowdsourcing education–sounds good to me.
