Changing self-education with Alcamy
Alcamy bridges communities and self-learners with the best learning resources and discussions built around them. Our mission is to help people learn new things quickly and empower them to be successful through self-education.

We take an open, Wikipedia-like approach to curating content & information for self-learning. Call it a Wikipedia + Coursera + Reddit mashup. We make learning and teaching using the resources already available on the web open, free and exciting! 

1. Share

Anyone can create or contribute to a topic. Each topic is independently moderated by its original creators and moderators. Contributors can share resources like videos, research papers, tutorials and web articles. 

2. Vote and discuss

Anyone with an Alcamy account can vote, comment and summarize the resources available on Alcamy. Summaries help everyone learn things faster and comments provide valuable opinions and perspectives.

3. Learn

At the end of the day, Alcamy is a tool for self-learning. We provide a beautiful and user-friendly interface to discover topics you're interested in and track your progress as you learn. 

– Team Alcamy
Learn from these and many other topics on the Alcamy library.
This is our way of rewarding self-learners and those who contribute to curating knowledge on Alcamy.
