The Google of Learning

In 2011, The Google of Learning as a concept was proposed in a series of articles on the blogs of NuVeda Learning (www.nuvedalearning.com/blog). At a very high level, the Google of Learning is envisaged as a system or a space that offers several characteristics that are important to learning: Content-rich, personalized, collaborative, fosters research, provides continuous feedback and analytics, allows for nuggetization, is sense-itive and is always available, over all learning devices.

We explore the concept, its origins, and the current state of readiness across various industry players including NuVeda.
