Lernabit allows anyone to create 5-10 minute long audio lectures about any topic. These free lectures-- known as "Bits"-- then become available for free to world, including people without an account on Lernabit. Then, we give a portion of our profits to charities that focus on education around the world.
Many people have been concerned about the "education problem". Lernabit is based on the premise that there is no single education problem. We need to treat education as a set of many problems ranging from lack of time, to lack of tools, and even a lack of infrastructure that prevents kids and adults from getting an education. Lernabit is an experiment in how these problems can solve each other.... More Info »
For example, a college student can use Lernabit to create a lecture, thereby improving their own understanding of the topic. Then, because it is audio format, it is easily accessible to busy people. Finally, since we don't have to pay for that content, we can give a portion of our revenue to charities that build schools and infrastructure to help improve education.
All of this is made easier with a powerful publishing platform. You can use the web app with your full keyboard to write notes for your lecture, then use our free app and record the lecture on your phone while reading your notes. Just submit both and they are automatically paired up; the audio lecture with your notes. Alternatively, you can use either one individually and even upload a recording you've made with a different microphone.
