Thanks for trying WeLearn! This document highlights major and minor changes to the extension and web app.

WeLearn is available as a prototype quality software, which essentially means that there are bugs, missing features, and incomplete user experience.
Here is what’s new in this version of WeLearn extension:
Noticed something new in the Discover Map? Thank you! We’ve reworked the whole page and visualisation. Here’s what changed:
- Browser support. Almost all the recent web browsers are fully supported. Including iOS Safari, Chrome on Android, and even Chromium on Raspberry Pi!
- As you zoom in, relevant Concept labels will appear. Click on them to see all the resources tagged under that concept!
- You can switch the map layer to see just your own resources, everything, or the curated collections.
- Lots of bugs fixed, and we’ve improved page performance.
As always, thanks for using WeLearn. We have some interesting new features planned. Stay tuned!

While our Covid-19 map looks nice, it does not constitute a medical advice. For facts and figures, please consult official resources for Covid-19 Pandemic:
