Every now and then, a new resource comes along that’s worth a second–or third, or fourth–look.
You might feel that way about Brilliant–a site that helps users learn not through lecture videos, but through hands-on, interactive learning.
Brilliant works by helping learners of all ages master content instead of simply memorizing. It also provides instant feedback so that learners can improve their knowledge through problem solving. Struggle is part of Brilliant’s instructional strategy, because the path to learning STEM isn’t necessarily 100 percent easy.
