What is the benefit of MEC?
To meet new people who can teach you something. The focus is on their skills and knowledge and not their CV like in LinkedIn.
What is P2P?
Peer to peer learning is a system where people learn from each other in a not formal way. We believe that everybody knows something and nobody knows everything so lets together learn more
Do I have to pay?
No, the platform is completely free for all users. Just register and based on the provided filters find your study buddy
How do we teach each other?
You can do it either online through skype, google hangouts, etc or even offline if you are in the same city. We leave it totally up to you to choose the best tool.
What is a "token"?
Tokens are the internal payment currency which you can use to “pay” your study buddy for their teaching/skills.
How can I get more tokens?
There are several ways to get more tokens. You can teach somebody something for which you will receive token from him after each lesson. Make sure you remind him to transfer tokens after each lesson. You can also use our referral system to invite friends and you will receive additional tokens. For each review (certified by us) you also receive a token. For creating some content which you share with the other people in the platform and many other ways.
How does the platform work?
Tou register and state the skills you have and the new skills or knowledge, which you want to acquire. Then, through the filters you find a friend who has the knowledge/skill you are looking for and what he needs. Then you start teaching each other and exchange tokens as payment. For example you want to learn Chinese and can teach English or you have legal questions, but offer to create a logo. Then you find the exact opposite person and you do it.
What about if I cannot find the perfect match?
You can always find a person which has the knowledge/skills you need and pay him with your tokens. That’s why it is important to accumulate tokens.
How to be sure that a member really has the knowledge he claims?
It is very important after you get in touch with a particular member to leave a review under his profile. This way you will help the next member who gets in touch with him and you will benefit from the reviews, which other people have left for the member your are interested in.
