Introducing... Sivana!

For some time now we've been working on this behind the scenes, and this week it comes to fruition -- EvolvEd will now be called Sivana!

Sivana has been known in literature as a (possibly mythical) refuge in the Himalayas populated by a group of wise folks called the Sages of Sivana. The protagonist of one recent story was advised to find Sivana and speak to the sages as he sought a new meaning for his life.

We love this idea and feel it's an ideal match for our company's mission.

Starting on Thursday, our site will be found at

Sivana - An Online Learning Community

Join our community to learn or teach any subject online.

. All pages within the site will follow their current paths, but at the new domain, and old links will redirect to the new URLs automatically.

We hope you are excited as we are about this new branding and site updates!

We here at EvolvEd know that the world is facing challenging times ahead. And we built this platform to meet that challenge. We believe in your ability to set the course of the future. Only you can determine what choices you make in life. You can choose to react with violence, hate, and ignorance. Or you can choose to respond with peace, love, and knowledge. It's completely your choice.

Here's a little video that we found that we thought was pretty inspiring.
