"Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever."
The new, interactive learning platform for adults
Inspired by the constant development in educational technology, Learned.Live has created a vibrant, virtual space for passionate teachers and students with enquiring minds to meet through live, online classes. We should never stop learning and the constant evolution in technology means that we now have almost unlimited ways to explore and discover new information about everything and anything.
The Learned.Live interactive learning platform takes Edutech to the next level and has been developed by online teaching professionals to address the growing global appetite for online learning. The site was designed with community in mind and focuses on live, social interaction and supports courses for adult learners that can be accessed in real time with instant feedback from teachers.
This unique platform gives learners the opportunity to access expertise across a vast array of subjects from management skills to mindfulness, job searching to juggling, cookery to creative writing – the choice is endless.
How learning live helps students
Most people learn best through engaging, dynamic classes where they can ask questions when they need to and learn from a teacher who is with them in real time. Learned.Live is the UK’s only platform where all adult courses are taught live, online for individuals or small groups. Fun and enjoyment are always encouraged, and students can find their tribe of likeminded enthusiasts. There are hundreds of live classes to choose from and new courses are added every day. To find courses just use the search function.
How teachers can benefit from Learned.Live
For teachers, Learned.Live provides an easy to use, intuitive learning platform where they can share their knowledge, hassle free. They can choose their hours, teach what they love, set their own fees and design their own online classes. This allows them to take control of their time and earnings whilst immersing themselves in the comfort and support of a global community of like-minded professionals. Learned.Live takes care of the admin and billing, leaving teachers to focus on their subjects, hassle free. If you would like to teach, just visit the teacher’s page to sign up.
The Launch of Learned.Live
When the global pandemic hit, Founder Johnathan Reynolds’ entertainment businesses had to close overnight. He soon started teaching English as a foreign language online, then quickly saw an opportunity to teach youngsters his own passions of magic, performance, entrepreneurship and business. The demand for an equivalent range of live, online classes for adults encouraged him to take the leap and set up his own online learning platform and Learned.Live was born.
If you want to join Johnathan in one of his classes, you can find them here.
From the very start Johnathan has been ably supported by his partner and co-founder Sophia, who is now in charge of the day to day running of Learned.Live. They have gathered together a small team of skilled and enthusiastic key team members.
