Last night, we held an Education Preview and Happy Hour with industry leaders Kaplan and Civitas in our downtown office. The focus of the event was to showcase upcoming technologies and their ability to improve the educational experience for both teens and post-secondary students.
We had a great time socializing with education professionals from a variety of backgrounds and showing off all the awesome new stuff we’re working on to make our courses more engaging and effective down the road. Things like 360 video so you can sit in the car with your favorite robot, Ace, while he explains concepts like right-of-way and the zones around a car.
Our friends at Civitas also did a presentation about how they’re using individualized data to improve college persistence and graduation rates with universities and post-secondary institutions. It’s cool stuff, guys! They can work with college counselors to make sure each individual student has their needs and education requirements met.
We’re so excited to get to work alongside other amazing Austin companies with a passion for improving learning and pushing the boundaries of what the future of education looks like. Check out some photos from the event below:
