About Education is what someone tells you to do. Learning is what you do for yourself. The traditional way of education forces square pegs into round holes. It's a one-size-fits-all solution that forces people down a predetermined path. Our mission is simple. Learning has no roadblocks, prescribed paths, tests, quizzes, or outdated majors and degrees. Teachers are passionate. Learn by Doing Rather than memorize equations for a test, learn by taking action. Your statement of accomplishment no longer needs to be a degree, certificate, or stamp of approval. Proof of learning is in progress and action. Everyone is a Teacher You can learn from anyone – which means we’re all teachers. Why teach? Learning Can Happen Anywhere Our cities are our best and biggest campuses, and any address can be a classroom. We Can Change Education The world’s most abundant resources are excess knowledge and skills. Learning and teaching are essential to keep the world spinning.
