Degreed is a free online education app that delivers the learning content you're interested in


Developer: Degreed Download: iOS
Category: Education Price: Free

There's the running joke that smartphones are computers infinitely more powerful than the one that took us to the Moon, yet we only use their capability to send each other photos with dog ears via Snapchat. While there's an element of truth to all jokes, including that one, that's still a limited view over things. Many people also take advantage of smartphones' constant connectivity to access the knowledge and information available online that interests them. Personal, motivated learning is Degreed's playing field. Previously available on the web, the platform now exists as an iOS application for smartphone users' convenience.

In short, Degreed is about discovering, tracking, utilizing, and sharing learning resources. Upon registering, users are provided content from a vast amount of online learning sources, such as articles, podcasts, and videos. There are also several key features to make learning more organized and fluid. The personal Degreed profile presents analytics and insights on one's learning habits, along with a learning record. On the basis of that, Degreed generates personalized playlists with new learning content, delivered daily. The 'Instant Capture' feature lets users easily add all the content they’ve learned on-the-go to their Degreed profiles.

Of course, there's also the ability to save articles, videos, or other content and review them later on the app. There's also a community of Degreed users to share learning interests and socialize with. Sounds like the ultimate book club, huh?

If the phrase "lifelong learning" resonates with you, get the app. Degreed promised it would stay free forever, although an eventual Android version isn't mentioned yet.

I like how the genius developers didn't develop this for the biggest and fastest-growing mobile platform - android.

There a message in everything if you look hard enough. The developers are giving you one, and it isn't a nice one lol.

Hi everyone. I'm Ryan, the Product Manager in charge of developing the iOS and Android apps at Degreed. We've been developing the Android app alongside the iOS app and it's coming along very nicely. Our original press announcement said the Android app would be released within weeks of the iOS app and we're still targeting that timeline. It'll be ready very soon. FWIW, I'm an Android user myself (Nexus 6) and am EXTREMELY anxious to get this out into the world. Please drop me a note directly (ryanj@degreed) if you have any questions or suggestions. :)
