Web 2.0 – An Era of Learning

Let’s rewind back to the early days of the world wide web. If we jog our memories a little bit,  we’d remember that  websites in those days served the purpose of disseminating information in a predominantly one-way fashion. This is usually referred to as the Web 1.0 era. We are now living in the Web 2.0 era where hyper-interactive multi-way flow of information is the norm (In fact, experts have already started talking about the advent of the Web 3.0 era). Users not only require interaction with the website but the means to share their experiences with the other users of the site. Increasingly, we see this online trend spill over to the way businesses function as well. Business today interact and co-create products and services along with their end users. Given this trend, the key question we ask at KNOLSKAPE is, isn’t it time that learning also became Web2.0-ised?

Even today, knowledge is imparted  largely in the Web 1.0 style. The instructor assumes the role of  an expert and delivers a lecture, with very little interaction between him / her and the students, leave alone interaction between the students. KNOLSKAPE believes that this method of delivery is ripe for disruption. Keeping with this spirit, KNOLSKAPE enables learning through experiential learning modules and simulations that work in a social setting, where learners learn not only from the instructor, but also from their peers.

Welcome to the Web 2.0, an era of learning.
