Pinterest turned out to be a mega-popular way for hobbyists, foodies and craft-makers to share their interests with one another. Now, the social learning company Grockit is trying out a variation of Pinterest's model in hopes of streamlining the learning process with Learnist.
The service has just launched, and it's only in beta, as Hack Education points out. Learned topics can be shared, commented on and pushed to Facebook, though, and it sounds like an iPhone app is in the works.
