Let’s say you wanted to teach yourself basic golf techniques by learning online. There are literally hundreds of relevant videos on YouTube, articles on eHow or About.com, and blog posts offering tidbits of wisdom. But how can you decipher the good content from the bad? How do you know what order to learn in? It’s tough. In fact, 60% of the time learning online is spent sifting through content. MentorMob is reinventing the way people learn online by giving learners access to the best content from around the web organized in a step-by-step, community generated “playlist.”
