Is there a topic that you are an expert in? Something that you’ve learned about, studied and now would like to share that knowledge with others? Maybe you want to learn more about a topic.
I’ve pointed out GuideSpot as an online learning spot. It’s a great site for sharing what you know. But did you know that Google also has a similar platform?
“Knol” (Google’s made up term for “a unit of knowledge”) has been around since 2007, and came out of beta in 2008.
Knol makes it easy for you to write and share your knowledge with the world.
- Ease of use
All you need is an account, a name and a desire to write and we’ll take care of the rest.
You specify the level of collaboration you want with the community. Your knol, your voice.
You can connect with other experts in your area of interest to share and grow knowledge.
We value and promote authorship. Great content will be visible on popular search engines.
Sharing your knowledge with the world is rewarding for everyone.
