Fancy getting your learn on before the week is out, but can’t afford the ludicrous fees of formal education and/or can’t abide the idea of living in student squalor? Well, as ever, Android has the answer…
This is Mobento, a video learning website that runs lectures from the world’s leading universities and institutions such as Yale (locksmithery), Khan Academy (wrath), NASA (rocket-science) and Stanford (… no. No, I have nothing), and it’s just launched on Android.
A free service that lets the information insatiate access over 600 selected lectures from the comfort of their smartphone, the informative app is searchable with ease thanks to Mobento’s ground-breaking spoken-word search technology. So if you’re looking for a bit of background on subjects as diverse as anything from setting up a start-up to learning how the Mars Rover is powered, or by extension, potentially starting up your own Mars Rover, you now know where to look.
Talking about the launch, Sumner Murphy, founder of Mobento said: “Online learning is really taking off at the moment. Last year, almost a third of post-secondary education students in the US enrolled in an online course and we’re expecting this trend to continue.”
With videos available over a Wi-Fi or 3G connection, Mobento also offers a handy ŒSave feature that lets you download and save for later, thus continuing to get clued up when you might not be quite so connected.
