EdCast is always trying to improve the way we learn and take in knowledge. The fast-growing social knowledge network is a haven for lifelong learners to be able to connect and interact with some of the world’s most innovative minds and now it has just gotten easier. Recently, EdCast launched its 10 Minute Insight Series, the first interactive setting for global influencers to share their specialized insights to help better the world. Participants who join the series can ask questions and connect with influencers in real time—for free. The series’ mission is to create a space for knowledge seekers and lifelong learners to interact and share bite-sized pieces of information with a wide-range of specialists on topics like global issues, finance, space and more. This series on global knowledge sharing will be led by Kunal Sood, the founding curator of TEDx UN Plaza and NOVUS, along with an eminent advisory board that have vetted and selected many high-level influencers. EdCasters will be able to recommend future influencers to the advisory board for consideration. You can find a continuously updated schedule here. To date, the current line-up of participants includes Mastercard CEO Naveen Jain, Scott McNealy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems; Tim Draper, Managing Partner, DFJ; Seth Levine, Co-Founder, Foundry Group; Dan Cohen, CEO, TechStars; Ajay Banga, CEO, Founder, Intelius; Vivek Ranadive, owner, Sacramento Kings; Robert Scoble, blogger and technological evangelist; Dean Ornish, world renown alternative medicine expert; Vivek Wadwah, named on TIME ’s 50 Most Influential Minds; Arwed Niestroj, CEO, Mercedes-Benz Research & Development NA, Michèle Angelique Flournoy, former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy; and Lars Rasmussen, Co-creator of Google Maps.
