Classroomies

Watch Stanford CS & Startup lectures together

#5 Product of the DayApril 24, 2018

Classroomies takes a totally different approach to free MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). Instead of watching lectures by yourself, you join a chat (classroom) and watch a 24/7 broadcast of Stanford lectures. Likeminded people are chiming in with questions, sharing additional resources and making valuable new connections. Loving the experience so far.

Tnx for the hunt @jasondainter! The goal is to build a learning environment where the community is core to the experience. Quick back story: I hated school, but the one thing I miss from offline-universities are the discussions with fellow classmates. For me, that's where the magic happened. The deep discussions on a particular topic, the sharing of additional resources, making friends etc. The last few years, I became highly addicted to watching online lectures, but kept feeling this void due to the lack of community and social interactions. That's why I've built Classroomies - Bringing the social interactions of an offline university / campus to online educational content. It’s invite only at the moment, but the Producthunt community can get access with the code: PH9114

Great work on the product @jibly. How did you come up with this and maybe you could tell us a bit more about your plans over the next year?
