Why Audio Learning?

We all like stories. Story telling is a very powerful medium. Listening to stories lights up a huge number of areas in your brain.

Audio content has been largely neglected in education in recent years. Our headsets offer an incredible storytelling medium, with accessible, relevant and entertaining content.

Most digital education systems are video based. They need expensive devices that require a lot of charging, data, break easily, make children a target for theft, and require single-tasking learning. Screens remove children from the world around them.

Jolp offers an affordable solution, with much lower power needs and lower risk.

Create an Educational Abundance Society

At Jolp we believe that all children should have access to our best knowledge and wisdom. Technology can enable a global base-level of education.

We want to accelerate learning with highly scalable tools and content. Digitised, democratised, and disruptive.

We envisage a future with peaceful understanding across nations, across distance and borders. With our global community of curators and contributors, weโ€™d like to find the best content to stimulate rational and scientific thinking in future generations.

Letโ€™s create an educational abundance society.
