Chunking in the Science of Learning: You take something complex, and break it down into smaller, easier-to-understand pieces
Each “Chunk” should be = the smallest possible unit of information to explain any topic.
100’s of mini-lessons already created:
Take something complex, and “chunk” it into smaller mini-lessons
Here are some sample collections that our community has saved (so far):
Build on top of other people’s lessons by “Forking” (copying)
Do you like the way someone else does their lesson? Do you want a fast and easy way to build on the lessons of others? Course Chunks will let you click a button and copy/fork someone else’s collection, and quickly add your own content.
Private. Hidden Lessons
Optionally, teams can keep their collections hidden so only invited participants can view their lessons
We realize that sometimes you want to keep your lessons hidden from the public. For this reason, we have the option to keep your lessons private. You can invite your friends to view and collaborate (or kick them out if you want!). With our premium paid option, you have all the controls about who can view (or add to) your lessons.
Export to your own site
Embed your chunks on your own website. Ask about our API for developers
If you are building an online community, we don’t think your users should ever need to leave your site to visit ours. For this reason, we make it easy to put all of the CourseChunks functionality right into your own website. This allows your users to curate content right on your own site.
Include your team
Invite your whole team to collaborate. Curate your collections together
We make it easy for teams to curate content together. This means you can create one chunk (or one course), and invite your whole team to collectively work together to curate excellent content
My entire team was building lessons by the end of the first day!
