This is a small snippet of my latest EDUKWEST interview with Andreas Schroeter, one of the co-founders of bab.la.
bab.la in a German startup based in Hamburg. The product is built around an online dictionary but it offers a ton of additional features like flashcards, games, a community, embeddable widgets for blogs or websites and various iPhone applications.
In this part of the interview Andreas talks about the different business models on the market and where he sees the trend going. He makes a very interesting point about the social aspect of learning, that people are not necessarily sharing their learning progress with their network and that there is no real solution to this “problem” yet as sharing is of course the most essential part of a social media campaign.
The full episode will be available on EDUKWEST later today.
