In eight months, Sophia.org has grown to offer 4,500 free, multi-media tutorials on the Web. The online social education platform that offers crowd-sourced academic learning packets to anyone, anywhere, recently added 2,000 learning packets to the site.
Sophia’s newest learning packets were developed by both Sophia users and professional teachers, with a portion coming from Sophia’s acquisition of Guaranteach in May. The site offers content including math, English, science, economics, history and philosophy, using a range of mediums including text, music, video and more – all in an advertising-free environment.
Sophia.org uses features of popular social media sites to create a platform in which information is created by teachers, tutors, students and more, and organized in “learning packets” – bite-sized tutorials tagged to specific academic subjects or topics, including standards-aligned objectives.
