What is LRNGO?
How it Works
TEACH: Click here to create a free profile in minutes. Students contact you directly through the site using the public form on your profile. List with as little or as much information as you want to show the world. We are not a middleman. You decide who you want to teach and when, and whether you want to charge money or exchange free lessons. When you charge a fee, you keep all of your money and all of your freedom.
LEARN: Input a subject and your location in the search bar and click Search to instantly find people near you or online who teach that subject or activity. It's free to search and contact anyone. You can also search in our Schools/Classes section for local classes and online courses.
FREE EXCHANGE: Exchange lessons with others who might want to learn from you. No money to hire a teacher or take a class? Maybe there's someone just around the corner who will teach you in exchange for learning a skill that you have!
When creating your teaching profile, if you add at least one subject you would like to learn, you will also be automatically listed under Free Exchange. This does not obligate you, it just means that users can contact you or you can contact them to learn from each other for free if you both decide there is a match. For more information, see our Free Exchange FAQ page.
The LRNGO Team
LRNGO is not really about us, it's about all of you. The movement that made this whole concept possible came from people worldwide who believe we all have the power to teach and learn from each other, so we are honored to be YOUR team. However, if you're still curious to know more about who's doing what, here you go:
Our Philosophy (Why is LRNGO?)
LRNGO started out with a simple idea: that learning is something we all have in common throughout our lives. It includes formal education and employment, but extends way beyond that into any subject or activity where we have an interest or goal. Since we all have this in common and you can only go so far teaching yourself, why not have a platform where you can search and connect with others in your community or anywhere in the world to learn from?
We don't all have weeks to spend searching, and we don't all have money and time for a four year degree in everything we want to learn. What if you need to find a mentor, tutor or teacher, or a collaborator near you right now?
We decided LRNGO should be a free resource where anyone can see all options locally and worldwide for learning any subject or activity. You can search for others near you by subject & location, view their photo & background information, and contact them directly for free. You could hire them, or perhaps learn for free in exchange for teaching a skill one of them wants to learn. You can search for individual instructors near you, or group class offerings from individuals, businesses and schools. If there are no options near you for what you want to learn, you can even search for someone or classes anywhere in the world to teach you online. LRNGO is the world's first open social knowledge market, accessible by anyone at any time and free to search, list & contact.
The internet has gotten very good at making search engines for things, but we want to be a search engine for people. Not for who you know, that's already been done--but for who you don't know searchable by what you want to learn. LRNGO is where we can be each other's greatest resource for achieving goals, and we want to help everyone connect and learn faster. Build your personal learning network and join the social learning revolution!
