Innovative Gienga Website Takes Online Learning Experience To The Next Step

August 30, 2008

Covering subjects ranging from drumming to computer languages, allows visitors to learn from both user-written wiki guides and the best resources on the web.

Tel Aviv, Israel (PRnine – August 30, 2008) – Or Martonovich has used the web to learn since the Internet first became widely available. A young and ambitious freelancer and entrepreneur, he learned much of what he knows now about his fields of web development and design through a combination of informational reference sites and online forums. However, Martonovich soon began to think that there should be an easier way to access do-it-yourself information.

“The problem with learning on the internet for me was that it wasn’t always easy,” Martinovich explained. “I wasted precious time surfing the web and asking around in forums before I had the right tools and best resources to teach myself correctly. I came to the conclusion that there needed to be a place online that would act as an all-in-one solution for the self-learner.”

Martonovich decided to fix the problem himself. He developed a novel and innovative website,, which brings together a combination of the best resources and the best personal advice on the web. With the assistance of helpful directories and user-generated wiki guides, visitors to the site may now find out how to learn, where to learn, and exactly what to learn – whether it be architecture, Spanish, or magic tricks.

The “How To Learn” wiki guides exist for each subject and can be written and edited by anyone who would like to share their relevant experiences or insights – with each new users, the website expands and becomes more informative.

“There are no other websites like Gienga,” Martonovich said. “There are web directories, there are wikis, and there are how-to sites, but there are no comprehensive sites that gives it all to you in one easy-to-navigate package.”

Upon entering the site, users can either browse subjects or utilize the search function to find their specific interests. Once they have decided on what to learn, the site provides them with three types of resource options: websites, books, and videos. Users can also narrow down their search by difficultly level (beginner, intermediate, and advanced, or all levels). In addition to the resource directories and user-edited wiki guides, the site also gives visitors an opportunity to share where they’ve learned best by submitting links to relevant websites or read related articles about cultivating self-learning skills and “learning how to learn.”

As the website develops, Martonovich plans to add a number of new learning subjects as well as a forum where users can ask for advice or answer others’ questions. In addition, the site will contain a system for locating mentors in your areas of interest.
