Zeqr, a new type of global knowledge hub, launched today in public beta, set on revolutionizing the way in which people around the world exchange knowledge and information. Experts across a range of fields can create classes and deliver one-to-one, and one-to-many, live video sessions to those that are looking to improve their knowledge or learn a specific skill.
Daniel Hedlund, COO of Zeqr comments: "We founded Zeqr due to the difficulty we had finding people who were knowledgeable and skilled in the areas we needed for our previous businesses. Almost everyone wants to learn and improve their skills, whatever their field may be, but traditional education, training, and job resources are not always suitable and accessible and have proved inefficient and costly in providing clear guidance and support."
Zeqr's platform solves this problem as a unique facilitator of knowledge exchange. The marketplace allows for those with varied areas expertise (Xperts) and those eager to become better informed and learn (Zeqrs) to connect in a fashion that they haven't been able to previously. With the options of real-time group classes, one-to-one and one-to-many consultations through video, voice, and screen share - Zeqrs can determine the learning method that's right for them at their chosen time and pace.
As part of the public beta launch, globally respected experts have joined the platform to offer exclusive classes to select Zeqrs who register their interest. Experts that are already live on the platform are;
