Learn about Visual.School , the next generation online learning platform. The world is spinning, time is advancing and everything in the world evolve. Even when, at a first glance, there is no need for innovation you are pleasantly impressed with a new approach to an established product or service. The internet is full of tutorials and online courses and you may think that there is no room for new ideas, thinking out of the box, to develop even further the online learning methods.
Visual.School is a new online learning provider aiming to hugely improve the user experience. Today’s online tutorials are good but they can be improved and i will go through some of the key points of VisualSchool’s learning methods.
When trying to digest massive amounts of information you need helpers. A lot of them. You need to figure out fast what does what. How the code flow jumps from one file to the other. Usually when you go studying online you find dumbed down examples that are so far away from real life scenarios that you simply feel they are useless. We made it easy for you to follow real world code examples written by experts for real projects.
Today’s online learning material is structured in a linear fashion, you go though static lessons, reading/learning them 1 by 1. VisualSchool approach is different , allowing the student to set his own goals and offering paths to this goals. There is no point to learn 10 things in succession if you really need 1 to accomplish your professional goal target.
I’m sure everyone trying to learn something online has encountered this situation : you read and read more and after a few pages there are a lot of terms/words that are unfamiliar, that require you to go search in other courses to know what are those about. VisualSchool will provide nano-lessons, small short minilessons, embedded in the reading, that will allow you to quickly learn the basics of anything that you don’t know. Mark and the short explanation is 1 click away.
“I think the idea is cool and different from other courses provided online. I see you and your team are having huge knowledge in your basket, which indeed has built a good online course.” – Shrawan K Sharma
Another problem of the current format of e-guides is that they don’t place weights for each component of a course. Let’s say you need to learn A,B,C and D targets. But A,B and C only will give you small benefits towards your overall goal while D while give you a huge progress. Instead of going through a course of 10 pages for each A,B,C,D goals VisualSchool will focus to deliver your knowledge for the most important part (D) while offering a minimal effort path for the less important targets. Read extra details at New generation online learning platform.
Visual learning (or speed learning according to VisualSchool) is a faster way to learn. Instead of reading 100 words (like most of the online courses) the focus is on using less words but more schematics , examples, videos, slideshows and images. The goal is to learn more in less time.
The main concepts are :
1. Study according to your own experience. This saves time but also it’s making sure you don’t skip vital knowledge required to achieve your learning targets.
2. Fast focused learning. Less words, more examples, on point, combined with the next main concept, filling the knowledge gaps on the spot.
3. Get missing concepts on the spot. This one is the most important, no need to go search, find, browse through an entire e-book to learn a concept that you don’t know. Nano-lessons are a 1 click short lessons, on the spot, without losing focus and time, to learn the missing bits required to advance further.
