What’s Inside the Brackets?
An entire network of learners, educators and industry practitioners, connected through knowledge, ideas and collaboration.
We provide a social and networked online learning space where every learner has a direct link to fellow learners, teachers, experts, professionals and customers. This enables spontaneous co-creation of knowledge and connectivity between people across multiple domains.
Parenthexis is created from the word “Parenthesis”, which means interval, interjection or to take a short break. Whether it is between meetings, whilst commuting, or during a given day’s down-time, we believe that any gap in the day can be turned into an opportunity to connect with new knowledge, meet like-minded learning enthusiasts and progress your life and career. With Parenthexis providing this flexibility, you are free to build your learning around your work and life schedules. This interjection or interlude of learning is one that is customizable, allowing you to learn what motivates you, at your own pace, wherever you are.
Learning in Parenthexis gives you the power to do more with all of life’s in-between moments.

Circles and Chats
Anyone can create Circles which allow you to build learning communities to meet your learning goals. You can create Circles of a classroom, a school, a team, a department, an entire organization or a community! Within Circles, you will enjoy features such as Circle Chats that enable you to interact easily with one another. You can publish a course into a Circle, and enrol everyone or only selected members into the course. Course participants are automatically part of a Course Circle and can communicate with one other through the Course Chat within the Course Circle.
Users are free to join any Circles on Parenthexis, and need not confine themselves to their original Circles. They can search for people they know and add them as friends or invite them to Parenthexis if their friends are not users yet. Users can also search for Circles who share similar interests as them and request to join these Circles. The possibilities of learning are endless in Parenthexis.
