Nautilist: Pick-and-mix lists for all occasions

An open education initiative by NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program.


The Nautilist project is an open education initiative supported by NYU’s ITP program to help educators and creatives “Pick-and-mix lists for all occasions”. The web application allows people collaborate with others to add their favorite links from across the web, and mix and match links and lists to create quick references to interesting/helpful/inspiring content.

Rather than learning “just-in-case”, the idea of nautilist is to start thinking of ways in which we might start learning “just-in-time”. By centering learning and inspiration around remixable content in the form of lists explored from top to bottom, nautilist serves as the glue to content pulled from across the web. With an open API, nautilist also hope to serve as a data store for others looking for curated and bite-sized lists of resources to help make your ideas tangible.

This project is an experiment that grew out of discussions at ITP on ways we might start to support individual, project based learning. The result was the nautilist project.

The project is in alpha at: www.nautilists.com
