Known integrates with course software to give students a singular space to publish coursework, class discussions, bookmarks, and ideas.
Known empowers students publish their coursework, notes and ideas to a simple, beautiful personal learning environment that they control. They may then syndicate that content to their course software and social networks.
Known is designed to look and feel like the consumer social networks that they’re already using, and it works great on a mobile device. But most importantly, it allows students to keep all of their content throughout their college journey and beyond. They can even take their Known site with them when they graduate.
Our first pilot classes are running now, with more following shortly.
The core of Known is open source, and every single feature has an API interface. That means it’s really easy to extend, and people from markets outside education, like media and advertising, have already been coming to us asking to integrate Known into their ecosystems.
Known sells SaaS cloud subscriptions, and self-hosted enterprise licenses with full support.
