Learnist, the newly launched product, allows anyone to compile content pieces onto a board (they call it a “learning”) that may look familiar.
Unlike Pinterest, however, creators suggest a path in which to consume each content component. Users can check off each component as they go or “re-add” it to one of their own learnings.
The idea is to avoid the misinformation, hacked-together how-to articles and other useless content one must weed through in a typical Google search and instead provide a clear learning path that will eventually include some form of assessment.
Topics range from the frivolous — like how to find the best pizza in Brooklyn — to common core standards taught in classrooms.
Regardless of which of them you look at, you can now assure your Facebook friends you’re getting smarter.
