This interactive video chat in the United Kingdom connects students and teachers. Startup HowNow facilitates online learning with a video platform. Unlike YouTube channels like CrashCourse or similar educational content, HowNow connects people one on one so teachers can chat through lessons.

Experts can create a profile with a bio, what subjects they teach, their rates and availability. Learners can see when educators are available and book interactive video chat lessons by clicking a link. The video chat opens within their browser. HowNow facilitates the acquisition of a wide variety of skills and knowledge on topics ranging from yoga to languages.

This platform removes barriers for people interested in teaching while also making learning more accessible to those with little more than an Internet connection.
