UK start-up to get people earning through learning

The team behind mylearningworx, the UK’s first crowd sourced hub for learning, is to show people how to create online courses at its launch event on 13 December 2012 at Google Campus London.

 
PRLog - Dec. 6, 2012 - This represents a new opportunity for people to generate income by harnessing their existing knowledge and skills to share via courses sold at an affordable price.

mylearningworx is currently in beta and aims to ‘democratise UK learning’ by offering courses created by the crowd, for the crowd – that is any Internet user. Learners and authors alike are encouraged to share knowledge by creating content, then offering it for free or for a fee that they set. Ratings and feedback help learners choose the right content for them based on their development requirements. Content will cover anything and everything from IT skills to baking. And successful authors can earn good money.

The December launch of mylearningworx will be the first major investor led crowd-sourced learning project in the UK. Similar projects have been the flavour of 2012 in the US with around $70 million committed by venture capitalists to just nine start-up projects, aimed at varying social and business sectors and crowds.

“This is a unique new opportunity for people across the UK to profit from their existing knowledge by developing the skills of others,” comments mylearningworx managing director, Martin Belton. “People can create courses in their own time to suit their own schedule, fitting in an activity that can generate an income around existing family and work commitments.”

He continues, “What’s more, there’s no specialist equipment required, just a computer and an internet connection. Many content creation tools are either free or come as standard on either PCs or Macs. There are no barriers to getting started, and authors in the US are already earning thousands of dollars in income for their courses.”

The event takes place in Shoreditch, London at Google’s Campus HQ on Thursday 13 December. It costs just £9 to attend and will provide all the information users need to get started on creating their own courses. Visit http://www.mylearningworx.eventbrite.co.uk for full details.
