Project Description: (Click to open/close.)
Paths to Knowledge 2.0 (PtK), is a web based, free to use, social learning application.

The overall PtK objective is to allow anyone to create and share learning maps, like the one illustrated below, to facilitate the use of visitor created, and external, web content, for learning in a real-time, highly interactive, social environment.

The project is currently in the Concept Development stage.

Project Goal: "Map the internet for learning."

One of many possible PtK Learning Map designs:

Each colored dot represents a link to web content and is referred to as a "Learning Node". The suggested learning path is highlighted in yellow. The other paths are alternate suggestions the learner can explore.

PtK will assist with the organization of visitor created and external web content into pathed links a visitor can follow to achieve specific learning goals.
Goals can be broad, encompassing thousands of steps, or very specific with just a few steps that support just-in-time learning.
Nodes, paths, and sections of paths are all reusable and can be copied or linked to in other paths.

Web 2.0 real-time collaboration tools, like Google Wave, will be available for co-creation, communications, help, and socializing.

The project team is working on setting up the PtK 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, but it will be a few months before we obtain 501(c)3 IRS status.
