Information is more accessible today than ever before. Even with the world at our fingertips and 24/7 access to experts everywhere, we find ourselves in a bind. We know there is great, free content out there that we could use to learn just about anything. We also know that for every great article or video on the Internet there are 100,000 terrible ones to beat it to the top of the search engine results. Seeded from this frustration and fueled with the mission to change the way people access and learn from Internet content, MentorMob is bringing sense to all of this disorganization of valuable information.
Creating Learning Playlists is a free and easy process. Not only does it show the world what you know, but it opens your knowledge to people who share your skills so they can help you refine it by adding and editing your Learning Playlist. Creating and editing Learning Playlists opens the door to being able to share your skills and get feedback from those who share your passion. So finally, we can get some real organization when learning online because after all, it’s not up to the Internet to make learning free and accessible to the world, it’s up to us.
