Artem Zavyalov, one of the creators of Listenable, explains: “We combine the benefits of podcasts and online video courses at Listenable. We create a new way to learn on the go.” The motivation behind the design is about pairing convenience with real learning. “We just don’t have time for learning. Podcasts and audiobooks really leverage our time, so we can learn while commuting or exercising, but they have drawbacks. Audiobooks are too long; they can take upward of 20 hours to complete. Podcasts are hit or miss; you never know what you’re going to learn in the next episode. Online courses are often video-based, but no one has time to sit down and watch a video these days. With Listenable, you can learn screen-free, anytime and anywhere, even while you are doing something else.”
Learners so far are enjoying the app, with rave reviews like this one from _fantaghiro: “This is a must-have app for anyone who can’t live a day without learning. Exciting and relevant short courses available for you anywhere you go in audio form — so easy to get addicted!”
