It seems going a little bit social is just like putting a handful of flavoring into the dishes to spice things up. So we get social rating like Yelp, social bookmarking as delicious, social dining with Grubwithus and letslunch, and now social learning with TermWiki.

It’s been a long time since the online learning or online education concept has been raised with the coming of the internet era. People expected the “school without walls” will be forged online, just like how they expected the rising of internet would free them from commuting. It just doesn’t happen. But at least, TermWiki is working towards the aspiration. According to the Beijing based team, they’re building a “wikipedia for terms”, the site writes “TermWiki.com is aimed at sharing knowledge and connecting people with similar interests around the world. It’s like the break between classes: you can talk with your friends, pose a few questions, and learn more about the things that interest you.”

The site now provides users with eight language editions, including English, French, Germany, Japanese, Chinese, Spanish and Italian. Users can either browse its massive online term lists, or upload their own collections of terms. Also, you can translate these terms into another language to augment the database.
