This idea has been evolving and being thought about for over 5 years. But finally, we've had the opportunity to see if it can work.
It definitely started as a problem I was facing - I was (and still am) learning at a fast rate than I have ever learnt, however, none of it is what you would normally consider 'education'.
Whilst I have Degrees and Masters, I learn way more from Blogs, Podcasts, YouTube Vids and other people than I do from courses. In fact, I really dislike courses (Ironic for a former teachers lol).
But I never really knew how good I was, what I should focus on next or how to connect my random 'nodes' of learning together.
Then the idea of Playlists occurred to me. If I can stitch together learning from all over the web into a playlist, maybe other people would benefit from it. Then what if I can see other people's playlists and then start to get recommendations based on where I am, where I'm going, my interested and who I follow.
So that's what we're building.
