Sarah Lane's app cap on iPad Today 209 is Learnist, an app where people who are experts in their field curate lessons and share their knowledge. Learnist spans a wide variety of subjects including technology, academics, health, sports and much more. For instance, you can learn how to film movies from Gus Van Sant, learn about geometry from a math teacher, or even learn about making and canning strawberry jam.
Learnist incorporates web content, photos and video to make the learning process fun and engaging. Since it includes crowd-sourced content, there are many lessons available for free. Premium lessons from Gus Van Sant, Arianna Huffington, Professor Clay Christinsen and others are available as in-app purchases for $0.99. Learnist is a universal app for iPhone and iPad, and is free in the Apple App Store.
To see a demonstration of Learnist, check out iPad Today episode 209 with Sarah Lane and Leo Laporte.
