The spark was the example of a teacher/course/set of students/partner that provided their content into the system so that the students could study through a social learning experience. Some structure provided but much of the content comes from learners using other resources and figuring things out on their own with guidance from experts, mentors, etc. At first when I saw Grockit and heard they got $8M in funding from some pretty good VCs including Benchmark Capital, I was wondering what was going on.
