Find Outstanding Educational Content With Lernabit

The aim of Lernabit is to be the best app for self-learners. No matter what you want to learn, Lernabit can help you. Up until now though, Lernabit has been a note taking app that helps you more efficiently memorize what you learn. The only problem with that is that you still needed sources of content to study. In other words, Lernabit could help you remember what you learn, but it didn't give you much content to learn from. The most recent update to the site is the first step to changing that.

Across the site, you will now see links to articles from a hand-picked selection of websites that offer high quality educational content. Using RSS feeds from those sites, Lernabit automatically fetches the most recent articles from those sites and creates a note with a description of the article and a link. And, just as you can view a person's profile page and see what notes they have created, you can also look at a specific feed to see more from that particular site.

Even cooler, by turning the links into regular notes, they behave just like any other note on Lernabit. They appear in search results, you can add them to your review list, they show up in the feed, and they are included in the list of suggested notes. Simply put, this update means that there is a lot more content available for browsing on Lernabit.

  • Art and design
  • Computer science, programming, etc.
  • Science and math

If you know of great sites focused on education, send them in! They might be included in the public feed on Lernabit.
