Platforms expert @ a US-based EdTech startup (part-time contractor engagement)
Primerli is raising the bar for what digital learning can be.
Let’s face it: most professional learning content is notoriously low quality. It’s boring, slow, and ineffective. At the same time, “content” elsewhere is more engaging than ever. At Primerli, we are taking the modern standards of structure, storytelling, and production quality and applying them to create learning content that is not just effective, but also enjoyable. Humans are curious creatures - learning should be a delightful experience, and it can be.
We’re starting this revolution with industry primers. Project based work is growing across all sectors, with professionals applying their specific functional skills across clients in multiple industries. To succeed, these professionals have to get up to speed fast, becoming experts on an industry overnight. Whether you’re a consultant or a freelancer, this currently results in a lot of time wasted doing desk research and reading long, boring industry reports - and you still have no idea what’s going on.
That’s where we come in. We partner with industry experts with decades of experience, distill their knowledge into fundamental insights, and then bring it all to life in a series of short, engaging animated content. In less than one hour, our learners can understand the fundamentals of any industry, ask informed questions, and be ready to serve their clients with confidence.
