Maria Popova, of Brain Pickings and Curiosity Counts fame, has just launched a new curation project for Coursekit called Explore. The site is a “discovery engine for meaningful knowledge, fueled by cross-disciplinary curiosity.
Explore embodies Coursekit’s aspiration to reshape education in the Information Age and aims to distill the wealth of information available to us today – online and off – into a portal of discovery for meaningful knowledge, powered by cross-disciplinary curiosity.
From TED talks to vintage maps to psychology studies to quotes from favorite books, and just about everything in between, Explore will guide you through the landscape of the mind as we explore the evolving architecture of knowledge together.
Expect to see plenty of vias here from Explore going forward. I was about to ask how in the hell Popova has the time to expertly curate three content-heavy sites, but it seems she’s handed off the reins of Curiosity Counts to someone else. Good for her.
