Simply put teachem allows anyone to create a class from YouTube videos by adding time stamped flashcards and review questions.
Why did we create this?
There is a lot of video on YouTube. To give you an idea of how fast it is growing in two days of uploads it would take more than a decade to view all the video. YouTube also boasts over 700,000 educational videos in its EDU channel. From a learning standpoint we estimate there is more knowledge on YouTube than has ever been in one location in human history.
While this leads to a lot of opportunity it can also be very overwhelming.
We made creating a class on Teachem so simple it only take 30 seconds to get started. We also took it one step further than just creating a class. First you create a school. Call it the School of Entrepreneurship. Then you can create as many classes as you want in that school by adding time-stamped flashcards and review questions to the videos.
We believe teachem can do the same for teaching as blogging did for publishing. That is open it up to the masses. Unlike other online learning platforms you are not primarily creating a class for a main catalog, but instead for your own school.
Best of all, it's free.
What do we believe in at teachem?
First off, we do not like waste. For us that means wasting amazing educational videos on YouTube that get lost in its abyss and are never organized into a classroom format.
Second, we love organizing information. The simplest way to organize a video is to create time stamped flashcards that follow along with it.
Third, we obviously love learning. We created teachem for ourselves. We want to learn something new each and every day. The teachem platform allows us to do just that.
Fourth, and finally, we love simplicity.
