Online learning - and our collective thoughts about it - has evolved dramatically in the last year. Creating and sharing engaging content online has been a difficulty experienced everywhere. The content hasn't changed, but our difficulty in engaging with it in an effective way online has certainly posed its fair share of challenges. "Good content is the first step. But the next step involves those conversations and interactions you have with others to illuminate the content and help you remember it.” - June Ahn, Ph.D In the article Adapting to the (Not So) New Age of Computer Learning Kayt Sukel shares some of these difficulties and how to engage learning in a virtual environment. “Unfortunately, online instruction isn’t as simple as throwing a textbook online—and, in my opinion, online education platforms have focused too much on just putting content up online,” - June Ahn, Ph.D Likewise, feedback is integral to an effective learning environment.

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.

As educators ourselves, we sought to create a very different kind of learning platform that was
