Tappestry


Tappestry™ is the social network for learning.

For the first time, you can record what you have learned easily and immediately throughout your day. You can come back to it whenever you want. And the best part is you can share with others and learn from others with other social networks and websites.

What did you learn today? With Tappestry, you can track what you have learned and catalog it. Then you can tell everyone. Don't be shy, you might just meet someone interested in the same things you are. You can use Tappestry to create and curate your own learning stream. Tappestry is a great place to store your learning and your thoughts and check in those little “A-ha!” moments you have. Think of it as your own learning journal or notebook for things you pick up over the course of your day all woven together to create your own distinct learning fabric, your Tappestry.

Why Tappestry? It helps you learn more. It helps you remember and track what you have learned. It helps take what you have learned and start using it.

Nice idea, many usability issues The principles behind the system are good, but the app has a few snags. In start up there is often a long pause while it gets data, but nothing is happening on screen so looks like it hung; I'm given the first time user instructions every time, there appears to be no way of switching it off; classifying activity is prescriptive with no obvious way of suggesting new categories (eg I see dance as a physical participative activity more like sport, not performing arts); too easy to hit "back" and close app.

Very innovative Tappestry really does create a new platform for social learning. Have seen nothing like it.
