Hyperlink is a course platform and online school built for seriously effective learning.

How does it work?

Hyperlink is a platform for creating and participating in community-driven online courses. Each course is a template for a learning experience. It can be run repeatedly, in independent cohorts. Want to learn more? Check out our manual.

Join to create a course, learn something new — or both!

Each course cohort brings together a small group of peers excited to learn together. And we're making new courses together every day.

Cohorts serve as lightweight experiments. Hyperlink's focus on iterative development means courses always keep improving.
