The "Why Huddle Up?" question is closely tied to "Why did we build Huddle Up?". And, it's a great place to start.
In short, we're tired of online learning models that consist of boring videos with an occasional quiz.That's outdated learning. It's not relevant or engaging.
And, it's doing a disservice to any individual who has had to endure it... and the companies and schools that expect (and need) so much more.
Unlike that model of learning, we created Huddle Up because we believe the best learning comes when
1. Learners are involved in trying to create and share solutions, not memorize facts
2. Learners actively give feedback to one another, to improve each user's solution.
3. Real learning is not demonstrated by what you know. It is demonstrated by what you can do with what you know - and how your application of knowledge is judged by others.
As educators ourselves, we sought to create a very different kind of learning platform that was set up to meet those needs. In fact, it's so different, it's patented. Have a look and see what makes us so unique.
That's why we created Huddle Up.
That's why we are driven by our mission: To transform online learning for individuals and organizations through a more purposeful, interactive experience.
That's why we like to say: When organizations want to engage individuals in finding solutions to an existing problem while leveraging the power or interactive feedback, they should Huddle Up.
We look forward to learning what we can build, together.
