We are honored to be Jane's pick of the day. Jane Hart highlights sites and applications that are interesting to the elearning community. TwoBrains is an experiment that we put together a little over a year ago. It provides the ability to identify and/or share a learning goal and associate resources to it from around the web.
In what was one of my less stellar moments, I changed the brand from LearningFlow to TwoBrains, so that we could use LearningFlow for a variety of services. The change was necessary, the new branding was the issue. It is exciting to see that we are up to 187 users, and although we are probably not really ready to sell to Google yet, I am planning for a huge increase in traffic once it goes mainstream ;).
We know there are a lot of changes that should/could be made to the TwoBrains service, "groups" is probably the most needed. If we can find some resources to make these changes we will. It would also be great to be able to show some content around the goal and sequence the content resources.
One thing that I hope will happen from this exposure is that we get some feedback from our users. I am always interested in new ideas about how to improve. Ultimately, I think we were on the right track, this type of system should allow learners to organize resources and benefit from the network effect.
UPDATE: The power of Jane's pick pushed us to 200 users. One of which entered learning goals. I am working on adding resources for those posting goals.
