Great to have you here! We are excited to create a new way of knowledge sharing without borders. We hope to make you curious about our approach to enable educators and students to work together in a creative, learner-centric environment which provides the freedom and the inspiration to think and create.
Or you are a professional, looking for a way to keep your team aligned, informed and on the same page at all times.

You know all that, because you have already been amazed by the creativity of your students, when they approach one of your open end questions and you happened to let them go wild ... :)
As a knowledge worker you already know your way around and are able to lead and work in teams. You also know that it is sometimes quite challenging to have everybody on the same page in a non-trivial project that calls for cross-functional participation.
Alone keeping information up-to-date and current for every member of the team is not always the easiest thing to achieve even with web-based, specialised tools and shared file services, you will always experience that the latest changes to your presentation didn't make it to everybody in the team, even you just had a presentation and sent the slides to the file-server ...
