ABOUT SOCELOR (and Jesse)

Passionate About How We Learn

Welcome to Socelor, where learning is at the center of your experience. Our mission is to provide accessible and affordable learning to anyone, anywhere. As one of the world's leading scholars on The Science of Learning, Professor Martin (just Jesse - more about him below) has spent decades developing the ideal way to translate what we know about learning into how we can best help you learn with a focus on Abstract Cognitive Enablers (ACEs) or higher-level thinking skills. Whether you're looking to develop your ACEs, advance your career, or simply explore a new subject, we have courses for you. With experienced instructors and engaging content, our courses are designed to inspire and empower you to achieve your goals.

With the distinct possibility that AI will eventually have advanced thinking skills, it is more important than ever to develop your ACEs to remain relevant in tomorrow's world. You may have some of the ACEs that are learned at Socelor, but what will make you powerful is developing them together and learning to synergize them seamlessly into the most powerful thing found in our world today - the highly developed human mind. At Socelor our entire focus is on unleashing your human potential. Not through some gimmick or game, but through the tried and tested methods based on The Science of Learning that have made humans the dominant and the most versatile species on the planet. I am not ready to give up on that yet.
