Brainly Engages Students in Crowd Learning

By Marcin Gnat

The nature of teaching at any level today has changed dramatically even within the past five years. It’s now much easier to update students, to access educational resources, and to complete research into new teaching methods online. Web tools and social networks are making crowd learning the new wave in education.

With so much education technology bombarding teachers today it can be tough for the average teacher at any level to stay up to date with new software, new technologies and new applications that they can use in their classrooms. Crowd learning tools reduce teacher pressure, while creating a global teaching and learning audience.

Most teachers stress the importance of homework and active learning at home. Regardless of a student’s educational level, doing a bit of work at home and reviewing information that they may have learned throughout the day in school can be beneficial to retaining information. Because a teacher can’t be available 24 hours a day, and because every parent can’t always offer homework help and support a number of online communities have emerged within the past few years. This digital environment is what gives crowd learning its name.

One crowd learning education technology platform is Brainly, which makes it possible for students to keep in touch with their teachers while they are at home and receive homework help and to review questions in extra material that they can use to understand concepts.

Teachers not only use Brainly to connect with their students, but it’s also possible for students to connect with other students to provide one-­on­-one tutoring. Brainly has become so populated that roughly 70% of the questions on the website are now answered within just 10 min. A large online population of teachers and students is what makes crowd learning powerful.

The internet has evolved into a place where a lot of goods might be shared. Platforms like AirBnB and BlaBlaCar help people find places to sleep or cars to drive, when they’re away from home. These platforms help consumers save money, time and gasoline.

It seems that similar education sites can also benefit from this kind of crowd learning, giving students, teachers and other knowledge seekers a huge and basically unlimited space to exchange their talents and grow together.

Crowd learning sites, like Brainly, connect people, who are willing to help each other find not just places to sleep but places to learn.
