Imagine you are travelling to school or workplace, you could pull any podcast or video-clip using your smartphone based on your preferred interest and enjoys some light learning while you are on the go.

When you reached your destination, to prepare your physiology you could tune in to some mindfulness meditation ( or body scan). 

During your meal break, you could research on the food you choose to consume and be mindful of what you eat.

After school or work, you could track your own health based on wearable sensor and decide what type of exercise to enjoy.

To prepare for your foreseeable future, you could learn on the go at anytime and anywhere.

Great idea. It feels like a combination of Google Search, Wikipedia, Quora and Quizlet apps. Part of the value will be in the curation, accuracy and presentation of the content.
