A Unique 21st Century Approach to Learning and Teaching

Lifelong & Personalized Learning

Classes have no end date.  Once enrolled in a class, you stay enrolled for your lifetime, you can always go back and refresh your learning or see what is new on the topic.  Also, you are provided a “Personal Dashboard” that changes as the class is updated or your learning needs change.

Educational Blockchains

We use A-Keys and Blockchains to help ensure the underlying information is verified and your content is protected.  Blockchains contain verifications and the “Authority” of the verifier, allowing the learner to better value information.

Cloud Based Learning Library

We use the latest Artificial Intelligence algorithms to aggregate & curate content from internal & external sources. This creates a powerful real-time repository for all the potential learning available to you.  The Learning Library is personalized for the learner and updated dynamically to deliver the best learning at the best time.

Knowledge and testing Separation

Knowledge Assessment Only As Needed

We separate knowledge acquisition from knowledge assessment.  This greatly reduces the cost of learning, because you then only test for those critical skills that you need to be sure you’ve mastered.  It also reduces instructor biases in the assessment process.

Key Benefits of our Learning Network

Full Ownership & Control of Original Content

Learning Network members are given A-keys and assigned Tokens to ensure they always have full control of where and how their personal data and created IP are used.

Information Always up to Date

Information in the Learning Network Library is automatically updated across all Learning Communities, so it’s always up to date.

Increasing Network Value

The larger the Learning network grows the more value it delivers to everyone in the network.  Value is increased by adding new high quality original content.

Seamless Signups & Networking

Learners save time by: 1) not having to sign up to different learning web sites and 2) having the learning flow seamlessly to the learner when the learner needs it.

Maintain Your Learning Across Multiple Communities

Learners reviews, reputation and learning history is maintained across all the other @lantis learning communities.

Instant Access to the Most Actionable Learning

Users connected to the our Learning Network have instant access to a growing wealth of information.

Why we do it

Reason one

Because we believe there is just too much information for only one person to process. We need ALL of us to share information in ways it benefits us ALL.

Reason two

Confirmation Bias, Selective Perception, Motivated Reasoning, and Linguistic/Cultural Bias are things that can affect our thinking. We need information from different viewpoints so we can improve our aggregate critical thinking skills.

Still not convinced? Here is another one:

Reason three

Because we believe education can and should be cheaper.  We want to reduce the net cost to the community to stay current and teach knowledge and wisdom to the next generations.
