Alekese is a tool that helps groups of people with common interests share links to great free tutorials.
Using our one-of-a-kind sorting system, you can quickly figure out which skills you need to learn and where to learn them. Because Alekese automatically keeps track of everything you've learned in the lesson plans, it's easy to focus on learning the important stuff first.
Best of all, Alekese content areas can grow quickly using tiny contributions from all of our users thanks to our new, easy-to-use Graphical Tree Editor!
The problem with other educational websites is that they copy too much from traditional institutions and miss the advantage having a ridiculously cheap way to copy data and share it with anyone on the planet. They just don’t get it.
At Alekese, we do get it. We’ll never corral you into a “virtual classroom” with a dozen students vying for the attention of a single teacher who’s delivering the same lesson she’s given to hundreds of students before. It’s a waste of technology. No, we help you find the very best in recorded lessons for anything that can be learned through one-way communication, and we’ll help you find one-on-one help for anything that can’t!
Distribution systems for knowledge are a tempting target for monopolies.
In ancient Athens, in the 8th-10th century Muslim world, and in the 18th century Western Enlightenment, education was decentralized. People were well-educated, and they made critical contributions to human culture.
Then education became institutionalized and centrally regulated, and quality suffered. It became monopolized. The first two of these civilizations declined rapidly—and one could argue that the third is declining.
We at Alekese believe that monopolistic control of education is the greatest threat to free people. We are committed to developing technologies that disrupt educational monopolies and provide people with compelling, viable alternatives.

Alekese offers you a place to find people interested in learning the same things you are. You can network with other people learning the same skills, or with tutors or contractors if you need an extra boost.
You can make money by finding jobs within the community, tutoring, helping, and contracting with other community members, and sharing the Alekese ad revenue by adding quality content.
Alekese saves you time by remembering everything you've learned with this site, but this only works for registered users. Non-registered users can still use the site to find good links, but they'll have to keep track of what they've learned themselves.
Although registering is easy and free, you're welcome to try out the site using our Demo user before creating an account of your own. Anyone can log in with the Demo user (the username and password are "demo"). Note that this account is reset periodically, so any changes you make will be lost.
A Skill is a name-tag for a bit of knowledge. It can cover any topic, but we try to focus on ones you can use to earn money.
Links take you to websites where you can learn Skills. All Links are ranked by the community, and the best Links are listed first.
Alekese is under heavy development. To be truly useful to our users, we need thousands of Trees and Links for a wide variety of marketable skills.
As developers Daniel and I are excited about Alekese, but we know it needs refinement. That's why we need your feedback!
If you'd like to help us make Alekese take off, please check out the site and email me at email@example.com with feedback.
