Learning groups, peer-to-peer courses, and course co-laboratories are all terms for the same idea of bringing people together to learn. The internet is full of endless resources to learn from alone, but The internet lacks platforms for bringing people together to learn collectively. A place where students learn and bring what they've learnt back to teach the group (Teaching is an effective to learn material and identify weak areas of knowledge), and where they can share resources with the group.
Central to researching what kind of platform can enable people to learn together in a digital medium is the idea of building better Conversational Interfaces.
