Revolutionising informal learning for the modern world

Our vision

At Nextlayer we are passionate about turning content we consume into learning opportunities, and learning opportunities into long lasting wisdom. It's time that learning got an upgrade.

Starting with audio through podcasts we are championing human progress and transformation through informal learning and personal knowledge growth. Our platform takes content that we consume everyday and supercharges it through annotation, personal articulation, post capture review and contextual resurfacing. All the while people build personal layers of learning, knowledge, insight and wisdom. These layers are interspersed with original content and even insights from their wider shared knowledge networks.

Learning needs an upgrade to support the modern mobile professional. We don't have time to sit on a course for 3 days or even devote hours to online learning programs. We need to learn on the go and turn all the content we consume into learning and personal growth.
