Did you know that there are over three billion searches related to learning and education take place monthly, but research shows that these searches frequently end with more questions than answers. To help parents and students out, Noodle Education was launched as the first and only life-long education search engine in the world. On Noodle.org you can discover the right school, college, tutor, instruction video, or any other education resource — for free.
Created in 2011 by a powerhouse team of education innovators from The Princeton Review, 2U, Kaplan, Kumon and Colloquy. The company has been recognized by Forbes Magazine, on Noodle.org you can find a quick and easy way to search and recommend schools, programs, providers and content for education. This includes a comprehensive database of over 130,000 schools and hundreds of thousands of education providers including K-12 schools, 2,900 4-year colleges, 5,000 graduate programs,135 study abroad programs and 80,000 tutoring listings.
This includes content from the most credible sources, including federal and state education departments and agencies, LinkedIn, Forbes, Newsweek, YouTube Education, and US News & World Report. Personally, I loved the learning materials where you could discover an incredible range of subjects from National Geographic, The Smithsonian, Khan Academy and BigThink.
The search component is also really interesting where you can engage with friends, family and others who have shared experiences that you can share via Facebook and Twitter, and save their results for easy access. This is ideal during the college search process where users can share what they learned through social media.
Also, to celebrate the site’s launch, Noodle Education is offering users a chance to win a $4,000 education scholarship (students may visit www.noodle.org to register for a chance to win and for Official Rules)
