Why Huddle Up?

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In short, we're tired of online learning models that consist of boring videos with an occasional quiz.That's outdated learning.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.

The Evolution of Online Learning: Four Stages and What's Next?

The pandemic has made everyone far more knowledgeable about online learning platforms than they were 24 months ago. We each know (and feel) the strengths and the limitations of more than a few platforms.  We each have a long and growing list of features we want to see in the next evolution of online learning.  So, it seems a rather good time to step back and explore the evolution of online learning - to see how far we've come, and where we might be heading. One of the best resources out there is a simple progression chart shared in this intriguing article by Tiago Forte. The Future of Education is Community: The Rise of Cohort-Based Courses The evolution of online learning: What's next? We love big-picture reflections like this. While we are all aware of the current disconnect that still exists between the reality of our online learning platforms and the skills and knowledge we want to transfer to learners, we can all agree that the evolution above represents some significant a

Transforming The Way Cohorts Collaborate and Learn

Recently, our Huddle Up team has been having a debate about the cohorts we serve. One Platform: Resources. Ideas. Feedback. Data. Do we strive to transform the way online cohorts collaborate and learn? Or, to transform the way cohorts collaborate and learn?  In short, does the interaction and data shared within Huddle Up's platform allow cohorts to have more productive virtual and face-to-face meetings? We'd like to think "yes". But ultimately, time (and data!) will tell -  as Project Leaders continue to find innovate use-cases. In the last few weeks, we've created a few helpful videos to showcase the Huddle Up model. We hope they shed light on the big potential we see for how to help cohorts be more connected, engaged, and accountable to each other by focusing on ideas and feedback.

3 Questions to Plan Engaging Interactive Experiences

 We recently received a great question from a Project Leader. (Thanks Mike.) How can I set up the most effective Huddle Up Project?   He had recently read an earlier post we shared entitled Engagement is the key... an how to get it . In essence, there was some disconnect between that post and the ideas were were discussing. The question was a great one because we were talking about related - but different - environments.  The earlier post referred to all online activities while our tips were specific to creating an engaging Huddle Up Challenge - the backbone of the Huddle Up Project. So, we decided to share a post to show the relationship between the lists.  Helpful Tips Below, we've shared some videos and examples to add more context.  Care for some examples? Lastly, it's always helpful to see a few examples of Challenges in the context of our three questions. To what degree will this challenge allow each learner to create a unique solution? Will learners benefit from seeing
