“No one knows everything, but everyone knows something.” Brainly is the world’s largest peer to peer homework platform, with 150 million global users per month, 16 million of whom are in the U.S. Huzefa talks with Eric Oldfield, the Chief Business Officer of Brainly, who joined Brainly after over 25 years of experience in the tech industry, previously working on Trulia and Zillow platforms to name just a few. 


What subjects can you get help with? The platform accepts any academic question, from any student, in any market. Currently operating in 35 countries, Brainly offers a place for students to tackle their homework problems together. With built in mechanisms to manage answer correctness and completeness, such as star ratings and the ability to report an answer that appears incorrect, students can have confidence when they turn to Brainly. “We are your smart friend that helps you with your homework,” Eric perfectly sums up the role social learning network plays in the lives of students. 


Huzefa is one of many teachers who enjoys verifying answers on the platform. When a question reaches a high level of popularity, answers are double checked again, and any helpful diagrams or walk-thrus are added as well.  Listen to the full interview below and for students, parents and teachers looking to use Brainly, check out these links here:
