LearnHub is a Social Learning Network. It is for people who love learning and sharing
knowledge with others. It is a set of tools that make learning online fun and engaging,
and teaching online easy and effective.
LearnHub not only helps people learn, but it helps them connect with other students
and teachers. A comprehensive reputation system, authority, helps people find reputable
teachers, who can be trusted.
Communities offer a showcase for the content one wants to share, and is a way to
attract attention to courses and tutoring people want to offer. Courses allow to
sell one’s expertise. Tutoring allows teachers to sell their time. If they
are an expert teacher, LearnHub is the place to go and put up their content and
let students find them.
LearnHub is a network of communities, each one built around a specific subject (ex.
Algebra, Education, History, Software Development). Students can search here to
find a community that fits their interest. They will find many communities offering
a wealth of freely available information, created by expert teachers, and other
students. The line between teacher and student is blurred, because a student in
one subject, can be a teacher in another.
Communities are a mixture of lessons (pages, videos, presentations, concept games),
tests, discussions, debates and fun activities. Students will also find a marketplace,
where they can find courses and tutor offerings from expert teachers.
