Check out what some people are saying about Learnist from recent reviews:
“New Web Based Teaching Product Makes Learning Look Pretty” - Mike Isaac, All Things D
"Search engines may make it easy to find information, but they don’t necessarily do the same for learning it. That’s why the founders of social test prep startup Grockit want to re-configure online content such as YouTube videos, Wikipedia entries and ebooks into ordered lesson plans." - Sarah Kessler, Mashable
“It is a playground of media and data that can act as a hub for the flipped classroom (more on that tomorrow) the same way Google+, Edmodo, or YouTube channels can, but ultimately with more flexibility.” - Terry Heick, TeachThought
“It’s more than just a website — it’s an entirely new way of looking at websites. Remember how Myspace and Facebook changed the way we thought of socializing and interacting online? Learnist might just change the way we look at learning. How? By taking that social sphere, accessing all the knowledge that can be found there and organizing it in a way that makes learning fun and simple.” - Alayna Frankenberry, The Sprout Fund
“I have so many ideas for learnings… and for the first time, I’m excited to use an online tool. This allows me as an expert in certain areas to demonstrate ideas and concepts in a way that can transcend but compliment the blogosphere. It also allows me to learn from others in areas of interest, or to find other interests entirely. I followed a board on microeconomics because for the first time, it interested me.” Nikki Barr, The Pink Ticket
