If I were to be completely transparent, I would have to tell you that myself and the team at Endagon have been working on a training concept that for a few months now. If all goes as planned, we will be ready to launch the training courses before the summertime. It is something we are extremely excited about.
The most fun and the most consuming aspect of building the platform has been making sure the training materials are both stimulating and unique to the reader. Nobody wants to read stuff they already know. Nor does anybody want to read content that is dull and boring. This makes it difficult to appeal to everybody at the same time.
I recently found a very compelling resource in the textbook customization arena. I had never heard of such a thing, so it immediately piqued my interest.
The concept is designed by Flat World Knowledge and the premise is online editable textbooks. As a teacher, I would be able to go into the platform to edit my students' reading materials, add pictures and/or insights, and just do whatever I can to add to the learning experience at hand.
Considering that Flat World Knowledge has recently raised over $27 million in VC money within the last 2 years tells me that this is a training idea that will be around for quite some time. After all, it is cutting edge and an ideal way to enhance our nation's educational issues.
