A Unique 21st Century Approach to Learning and Teaching
Classes have no end date. Once enrolled in a class, you stay enrolled for your lifetime, you can always go back and refresh your learning or see what is new on the topic. Also, you are provided a “Personal Dashboard” that changes as the class is updated or your learning needs change.
We use A-Keys and Blockchains to help ensure the underlying information is verified and your content is protected. Blockchains contain verifications and the “Authority” of the verifier, allowing the learner to better value information.
We use the latest Artificial Intelligence algorithms to aggregate & curate content from internal & external sources. This creates a powerful real-time repository for all the potential learning available to you. The Learning Library is personalized for the learner and updated dynamically to deliver the best learning at the best time.
We separate knowledge acquisition from knowledge assessment. This greatly reduces the cost of learning, because you then only test for those critical skills that you need to be sure you’ve mastered. It also reduces instructor biases in the assessment process.

Why we do it
Because we believe there is just too much information for only one person to process. We need ALL of us to share information in ways it benefits us ALL.
Confirmation Bias, Selective Perception, Motivated Reasoning, and Linguistic/Cultural Bias are things that can affect our thinking. We need information from different viewpoints so we can improve our aggregate critical thinking skills.

Because we believe education can and should be cheaper. We want to reduce the net cost to the community to stay current and teach knowledge and wisdom to the next generations.
