Skillio.net stands for the “Skill Input/Output Network – it’s a new, social, community breed of e-learning, providing a skill development platform, free of charge, via a business model & service design innovation, and which rewards its users for their learning achievements. Think of Skillio’s base product layer as Pinterest for learning – where “lessons” are the pins, and the learning “modules” are the pinboards. Their mantra: "Earn as you learn for free!". Skillio is focused on building a new paradigm in the professional learning space – the Social Learning Network.
Its knowledge base is a crowdsourced content mashup, socially curated quality-checked online resources (like links to articles, blog posts, videos, tutorials, papers, etc.) about a given professional subject. Then the knowledge selections are edited and put into streamlined learning paths, optionally with test quizzes. To boost engagement, the experience has been gamified with company-sponsored unique Learning Contests, and Reward Credits for learning achievements. Currently, the platform is under beta-testing with the UX/UI design profession.
