Over the last few years, the amount of interactive online courseware has exploded. Our goal was to help learners navigate this vast abundance of education with a website that indexed resources, reviews, and insights across providers. The act of building Knollop and reading thousands of reviews and comments about learning materials gave us new insights into the Internet as a tool for life long learning and teaching. We started exploring new projects and ultimately decided that our interest and passions lied with a new sort of learning concept.
The Knollop team is now building Learnstream. This website allows you to gather materials from around the web and organize them in a variety of ways. You can keep them completely private and use Learnstream as a personal bookmarking and file organization tool. Or, if you like, you can use your online resources to author guides. Many people have already published in-depth and general guides on a wide variety of subjects. For example, a guide on The Business of Freelance Iillustration or an Introduction to Chess or an Introduction to Practical Haskell. There’s many more, from the subjects of fashion to computer programming to physics and beyond!
While Knollop is no longer around, Learnstream is already building an amazing, diverse community.
