What exactly is GoConqr? In case you haven’t yet heard of it, GoConqr is a social learning network with more than 2.5 million users worldwide, mostly students and teachers.
Unlike other platforms, our tools are designed to put learners at the heart of learning, empowering them to create their own study resources or find what they need in our vast library of user-created resources covering every topic imaginable.
Users can create, discover and share a variety of content types including Mind Maps, Flashcards, Quizzes, Slides and Notes in order to learn at their own pace.
Even though GoConqr encourages students to take ownership of their learning, it doesn’t mean that teachers are forgotten about. In fact, GoConqr offers the perfect environment for implementing modern teaching methodologies such as the Flipped Classroom or the PBL model. This way, teachers can create their own private groups and Courses to guide the efforts of their students while encouraging them to explore and create their own material.
But don’t just take my word – read what an educator who uses GoConqr every day in his classroom had to say.
“The class’s use of the site started to take on a life of its own and my own role was more that of a moderator. I stopped making Flashcards altogether and just started directing the students and offering encouragement.”
- Sam Magar, a teacher at AIC in Perth, Australia
That’s exactly what GoConqr is all about!
Additionally, GoConqr offers users a more personalised learning experience by suggesting relevant learning material based on the user’s own interests or goals. They can then easily share their ideas and knowledge by connecting and collaborating with other like-minded learners around the world in our countless online communities.
What’s more, our tools and technologies continue to evolve – because we know that’s what our users do. It means that your learning journey is our learning journey too.
