Ratings and Reviews
Good curation of content in one place
When I usually browse on Twitter, I end up wasting a lot of time, going from one link to another. However, it wasn’t the case here. Content related to a topic was all in one place and had sufficient info that I didn’t need to follow links which ended up not wasting time.
The content is very similar to a lot of other popular sites, but since it’s all curated for you under a topic, you don’t have to go around looking for people to follow. It’s nice when an app does that for you since I don’t always know the experts in the field to follow. The content could be more richer and have weighted opinions, but since it’s the first release, I would give them the benefit of doubt.
Uniquely integrates informal and formal educational content
A key, IMHO, to effective mobile learning is not just to shrink the desktop via a responsive design but rather to think about the user experience outside the classroom/office/home — this app is focused on exactly that with a unique approach to integrating informal content (discussions, news, my own comments, etc) with formal structured content available via online courses. For example, I was just using the app and the channel on “Architecture” suggested a Ted talk on physical learning spaces which I found to be a terrific parallel to what his app itself is trying to do.
Unique take on mobile learning
I'm a huge fan of online courses in general, but most mobile apps I've used in the education space have basically just been like video playlists. It's pretty awesome that this app blends content discovery with communications(eg live streaming!!). Dare I call it the Snapchat for education ;) This appears to be a v1 app so there's still room for improvement but I think whoever is behind this may be on to something. Also there are some inconsistencies but the UI is pretty clean overall
