The Challenge:

Make it easier / more fun for the next person to learn what ever you are learning right now.

The site is designed to make it easy to turn any lesson in to project-based learning. Anything that a student is taught can become a project as a student tries to figure out how to teach the same material to a peer in their own creative way.

When students create lessons a number of beneficial processes are encouraged:

In addition to these potential benefits, students are creating lessons that they can refer back to later on, both as refreshers of their own learning as well as a portfolio of projects they have completed.
