About Ian

Hello this is Ian,

Welcome to my website “Your Learning Pal”:)

I’m a Taiwanese student who have always been fascinated by creators in online platform like “Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell”, “Thomas Frank” ever since I was in high school. Over the years, I have spent a lot of time exploring myself in the amazing online world to learn something new.

As a netizen nowadays, it is easy to explore some great ideas by learning online, and our world of view are now all connected globally. However, we have too much of information to select, and it really takes a lot of time to choose good content especially for learning.

Therefore, I want to share my learning experience with all of you:)

In this website, I will provide you some reviews of channels, courses and tools to save you some time, and find your ideal learning material efficiently.

A little story about my online learning experience

One day I saw news about “Leading goats”.

herd of goats on hill

The story is that there’re a lot of goats found dead under a cliff , and it just looked like they jumped out of the cliff together. After a further research on it, the locals found out the reason: The leading goat accidentally lead the wrong direction at night, so the following goat just jump out the cliff without hesitation.

I found it that I was just like the following goat, because I didn’t really know what I want to do, and what the world looks like. After that, I started to spend more time on finding opportunities to learn more, and learn the things that the education system didn’t provide for me. Therefore, I looked up for internet.

I’ve been fascinated by the creators, teachers and some great tools ever since I have tried to seek out for internet. I start to learn philosophy, marketing, self management, design and so on. Every resource I get just help me to become a self leading goat better.

Open Source is the key for the online community

All the videos, courses and tools I spend time with , they do not take much money, some of them are even free. I think it is because of the spirit of open source to let most of the netizens can get these resource so easily, and it is how the online community works.

As one of the members in online community, I want to help others in a way that I could, which is sharing my reviews of the great online resource:)
