Discuss, Discover and Learn: Join a community of curious minds from universities across the UK. Knodium puts the focus on the discussion itself. It is designed to help you easily communicate difficult concepts allowing for a more natural and meaningful discussion to take place; enabling people to focus on the topics they care about. 

Michael Willmot: I started what is now Knodium to solve a problem for me and my peers. We wanted a better way to study with each other online. We needed something that would take the pain out of having in depth discussions and that made use of all the techniques we were being encouraged to use such as making proper use of reference materials. Most importantly we just needed something that complemented our existing workflows. Not something that just assumed all studying was switching to online and trying to replicate the offline version of it. We have come a long way since then. We’ve learnt a lot about how people study and work with each other. We’ve tested all sorts of concepts and now, with the new academic year just beginning we’re really excited to be opening up Knodium to every UK university.
