There are more than a few problems that keep students from engaging in effective self directed online learning, and MentorMob, like Khan Academy and Edmodo, are working to leverage technology in order to disrupt education.
MentorMob is a learning platform that allows anyone to build sequential "Learning Playlists" on topics that interest them. The community can then rate, comment on, and add to Playlists that have already been created.
Social interaction, assessments, leader boards, and awarding digital badges to reward progress are all engagement tools that can be used to provide students an engaging and even addictive learning experience.
But this means teachers, parents, and technology companies have to work together to continue to refine and improve the online learning experience.
