A stream is the logical flow of ideas an author wants to help you learn. Streams are an important concept within Trickle because they provide structure for your learning journey. Streams allow authors to arrange drips into a storyline or sequence that they believe is best for learning. You can think of streams as containers for knowledge that can be used to organize drips and sources.
It is possible to read drips out of order, but you risk missing something important, in which case you can always go back. Like books, streams have chapters. Chapters are groupings of drips that logically fit together into the storyline. The structure of a stream can be viewed on the stream overview page. The stream overview page provides a description and presents you with the overall storyline by listing the headings of each chapter. Try reading through the chapter and drip titles in sequence, doing so will give you the big picture of what you will learn in the stream and help provide orientation during your learning journey.
Published streams can be found on the Discover page . When you are new to Trickle, one of the first things you’ll need to do is visit the Discover page and identify a stream that looks interesting. When you’ve found a stream you want to begin reading, open the stream overview by clicking on the stream in the catalog or in your queue. From there you can click Start Now and go to the first drip.
