Where are we now?
TheWell will be launched for beta-testing during 2022. We will continue to update the software and hardware solutions based on feedback from users, so we can improve the user experience and add new features. We will also work on a simple course authoring tool, which can help users edit and adapt existing courses or create new courses.
