What is LEARN IT?

LEARN IT is a social platform for sharing and growing the world’s knowledge through questions and answers.

LEARN IT Mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge. A vast amount of the knowledge that would be valuable to many people is currently only available to a few — either locked in people’s heads or only accessible to selected groups. We want to connect the people who have knowledge to the people who need it, to bring together people with different perspectives so they can understand each other better, and to empower everyone to share their knowledge for the benefit of the rest of the world.
