Lead a cross-functional team with design and development, and ship a real product
Taking the class with others means that I can learn and share at the same time. Having those pauses to share and learn by doing is really helpful for me.
I love the freedom to move at your own pace as a group so we can truly understand what's going on before moving forward compared to a live class where it's just go go go!
What I like the most is learning live with a group of people. It's really great to hear from different perspectives and personalities.
Co.Lab does a very good job of taking the best of in-person classes and applying that to an online format through conversations with people in a moment in time while learning is happening.
I like that I get to stay engaged. It's fun taking courses with someone else and knowing that you are accountable to others. It felt like a game but it was a learning environment.
It feels more personal in a small group compared to a large zoom class where everyone has their camera's off and is disengaged.
You have other people who are also going through the class and you can bounce ideas off each other & ask questions without the pressure of the instructor present which makes it a comfortable space.
I have the chance to collaborate and ask questions to my peers which helps me assimilate what I'm learning better. There is no feeling that you're being left behind or lost in class.
I'm not just learning by myself but also learning with others and getting their perspective and what they've gathered from the class. Because it's a smaller setting, I learn better that way.
It's a hybrid solution to self-paced online learning because you also have others with you which helps with the motivation to take the courses at the scheduled time.

Explore some of our Co.laborator stories and journeys
“I was drawn to Co.Lab because of the opportunity to collaborate with people, as I didn't have any experience working with a product manager (PM) and a developer simultaneously.“
“Going from school, where everything is given to you at a structured interval, to the workplace where most of the time, you’re expected to pick up new things by yourself, was a big change. I had a lot of self-doubt.“
“Co.Lab gave me a platform not just to learn product management but to perform product management. I launched a web-app… which is now live by working with the designer and developer I was provided, as a team.“
“Before I was really intimidated by it because I thought it was so technical. I’m not an engineer, I don’t think like an engineer. But if you need a great communicator, if you need someone who can organize, then I can do well in a role like that.“
