We are excited to officially launch Curious today! It’s been over a year in development, but we hope you’ll agree that it shows. Besides making Curious.com publicly available for the first time, we are also announcing the following:
- We are launching the Curious marketplace with more than 100 teachers who have already created over 500 lessons, in subjects ranging from calculus to wilderness survival to salsa dancing to pipe soldering. Over 200 lessons are completely free, with the others costing between $1 and $5.
- We are introducing Curious Coins as a currency you can use to purchase lessons on Curious. Each Coin is worth $1. For a limited time, all new members to Curious will get $20 of Curious Coins on us.
- We have raised over $7M from investors who agree that online learning is in need of a little sprucing up. So pull up a chair, we’re going to be here for a little while.
- Finally, due to popular demand, we are releasing (on a limited basis) a DIY version of our LessonBuilder. Teachers will be able to create, edit and manage their own Curious lessons entirely on their own. Apply here to become a Curious teacher.
We built Curious because we believe learning on the web should be much easier... and a whole lot more fun. And we can’t wait to see how teachers and learners around the globe end up using it. So you can understand our giddy excitement around the introduction of Curious to the world today.
Now that the two of you have met, we hope you will really hit it off.
