Popexpert is an online learning community that takes a mentorship approach, linking users with experts via video sessions.
There are tons of individuals on Popexpert that are an expert in a certain subject, from music to meditation. Popexpert allows users to directly connect with these experts to have one-on-one, face-to-face training sessions, discussions or exchanges of knowledge. There are even experts willing to give relationship advice or talk through emotional issues on the site. Although specific experts vary in their focus, the site is broken up into categories covering meditation, marketing, music, relationships, career mentoring, languages, nutrition, productivity and style.
The Popexpert interface feels much more personal than other online learning sites. Discussing a topic face-to-face with another individual is still one of the more valuable ways of learning something, even if it’s done through the medium of the computer. Popexpert also makes the learning experience more intuitive, allowing users to take notes on the side of the video chat that can be easily shared. The site is as useful for coaches, mentors or other individuals in leadership/mentorship positions that want to pick up a few extra clients regardless of location. The convenience of scheduling meetings at your own convenience for both mentors and learners on Popexpert also makes it an ideal situation. Learning a language or new instrument online through Popexpert is nearly as effective as meeting with a teacher in person, and there are definitely many benefits to being able to work on your own schedule.
