  • About
Company description
Eddefy is the mapquest of human knowledge. Rather than searching website after website to find a good learning resource, use the experience of experts to guide you. On Eddefy, experts create paths that guide learners through the steps of learning a skill. Paths consist of any type of educational content: websites, online courses, maker spaces, videos, articles...etc. As users rate paths and modify content, using better resources as they become available, the learning experience improves and diversifies to accomodate different learning styles. Experts gain credibility as Master path curators the more and better the paths they create. Furthermore, algorithms map the intersections of learning paths, and create personalized knowledge maps for learners that show the paths they've traveled. Eddefy utilizes collective human intelligence and experience to map the body of human knowledge.
