New features, fixes, and improvements to Ko.


Team profiles

To all the schools, universities, companies, and organizations working hard to share knowledge and build the future of education — we at Ko believe you're the most important contributors in the world.

We wanted to create a way for others to discover your work, so we built Team Profiles. You can now create a team profile and add a description, locations, and links. You'll also be able to invite team members and specify their roles.

Team profiles are available for free.

Personal profiles

Our goal is to make Ko personal profiles strong enough to serve as a digital resume that you can share with potential employers, so we've added two new sections: work experience and education.

We believe more detailed personal profiles will allow educators to build more trust with their visitors. Although your background may not always be related to the resources you share, it can mean a lot to a visitor when you share a bit about who you are.

Job listings

We felt that the education sector was lacking a dedicated space for hiring and career discovery, so we built a jobs board. We're aiming for our jobs board to become a primary destination for people to find amazing career opportunities in education, across industries, continents, and skill sets.

Teams can now create, edit, and manage job listings. Once a job listing is created, it'll be posted immediately on our jobs board.


Resources are great on their own, but even better when organized into guided learning experiences. You can now organize resources into kits, which can be set as publicly accessible or kept private.

Since kits are designed to be guided experiences, we built the ability to reorder resources via drag-and-drop and keyboard interactions. Use Option/Alt + Up/Down to move resources up or down in your kit.

Referral invites

At Ko, we believe the education community we're building is made of the most wonderful people in the world. That's why we're trusting existing members to build the community as you see fit.

If you're already a Ko member, you can now share a referral link with friends to let them skip the waitlist and create an account instantly.

Text editor improvements

You can now type / in the text editor to bring up a keyboard-navigable menu with multiple formatting options.


Oh yeah, we started a newsletter! Subscribe to our newsletter to get product updates, top resources, and new job listings delivered directly to your inbox.
