Description

Education on the web has a huge disconnect today. On one end, there are people with questions that need answering, and a lack of quality content to satisfy their needs. On the other end are aspiring content creators with vast pools of knowledge, but no idea where to start. Learn Me Something smashes these two groups of people together. Now people can request full lessons about certain topics and subjects, and content creators can find their audience.

How are we different from StackOverflow, RailsCasts, or Quora?
Learn Me Something differs from StackOverflow in that it encourages answerers to create their own fleshed-out content rather than providing quick answers to questions. Our users’ responses will be focused on original content for video tutorials or blog posts. StackOverflow is more about bug fixes of specific portions of code. We’re more about providing more complete lessons on subjects rather than just specific answers to specific questions.
Railscasts, Khan Academy, or even Code Academy are great services, but they are run individuals or startups who only have the capability of releasing a limited amount of content at any time. We let our users decide what kinds of tutorials they want, and judge the quality of the responses to their questions. Learn Me Something will also cater to a wide range of topics that are not just tech related. We want to be the one stop source for FAQs, tutorials, and open source education. Bloggers and tutorial video makers will know what topics are in great demand, and they will also have an idea of who and where their audience is.
