Although Stephen Fry has left Twitter, the popular British actor and writer hasn’t given up on social media altogether. Numerous sources have reported that Fry is involved in an education start-up being pitched as a “Pinterest for education.” Pindex allows teachers, students and anybody else to create online pinboards for collecting “the best educational material.”

A “board” in Pindex parlance is a collection of content  —  images, video and documents. To add content to their boards, users get a bookmark button from the site and then click it as they browse the Web to capture a specific image and link. Educators can post quizzes to their boards or “completion awards” that visitors can earn by getting 100 percent on the test or checking each post on the board
